Postmaster. Would Straighten Rivers. 'om the Kansas City Journal. Missouri might fittIngly be known as the 'state of crooked rivers." Owing to the icular texture of the soil, every stream n the state, large and small, has as many urves In it as a crawling serpent. Tihe mumerous bends cause the rivers to over hoW every spring and destroy large quan ities of valuable property. To prevent hese annual disasters organizations are be nig formed in all parts of the state to traighten the rivers, and in some counties hey have made valuaible improvements. he losses occasioned by the spring over lows are so conspicuous that they attract verybody's attention. The losses caused by ad roads probabl.y amount every year to nany thousands of dollars more; but be ause they are spread over a longer period hey do not attract so much and such gen ral attention, and little effort is made to oretall them. The county and district ublic improvement associations ought to an and labor for the Improvement of both oads and rivers. The two lines of work ould easily be carried on by the same or ranizations, and, if prosecuted with vigor, rould greatly augment the value of every ieco of real estate in the sections where he improvements were made. Pear Being "Queer." -rom success. The fear of being thought peculiar pre rents a great many people from reaching he limit of these possibilities. These eople cart endure unmerited blame, and ven calumny, with fortitude. They are pa .ent under great trials, and are not afraid .o face difficulties, noble in many ways and areak, perhaps, only in this one point. Fear if ridicule, of being thought different from >ther people, appears to be the one vulner ble spot in their armor. They seem unable o rid themselves of the idea that they ex :ite comment everywhere because of their upposed peculiarities. Nine times out of ten this "'queerness" is idisease of the imagination, and has no eal existence. The victim of such a morbid ~ondtion of mind must be his own physi :an. The veriest' tyro in the world's ways nust know that men and women are too usy with their own affairs, too much occu ;ied with selfish cares to. think much about tim, whether he is like or unlike other peo ;e of his acquaintance.

Among the positive announcements of the year thus.far In the ,lrectlon of medical discoveries may be Included that of a serum cure tot hay-fever, made by Prof. Dunbar, Amerlean head of the Hamburg Hygiehic Institute. While hay fever Is not to be, regarded as a fatal disease. It Is a most distressing malady, and if anything can be devised to cure It a great boon will be conferred upon the human race. Of far greater importance is the an nouncement that A probable- cure has been discovered for blood poteening, a malady which carries off a large number of people each' ear, and rhich has hitherto' resist ed, In many -cases, the best medical skill. Recent experimnents weith formalin In hos pitale In New York and elsewhere seem to show that this agency may be relied upon in many cases to arrest the process known as blood poisoning and effect permanent cure.. It this proves to be the case it will be, as one high medical authority has truly sald.-"the most important contribution to medical science In this generation." Still later-tian these comes the news. in a cable gram to the New York Sun from Rome, that Pi'of.' Cormagra of Pavia has discov ered the microbe of hydrophobia. It has been' the general impression that this dis ease 'was being successfully treated with the resnedy devised by Prof. Koch. but If this new discovery leads to something still more efficacious the world will have reason to be profoundly grateful. Hydrophobia is one of the most frightful maladies known to humanity, and whatever tends to dimin ish its ravages or to deprive it of its terrors will be of untbld'benefit. ELECTRICITY AND MATTER. Remarkable Qualities Possessed by Newly Discovered Radium. From the London Standard. Sir Oliver Lodge,principal of the Univer sity of Biri}ngbgM ,recentiy gave a lec ture at Bedford College on "Electricity and Matter." A"qUinrter of a century ago he would have. said.-that electricity had a property resembling inertia. Now he would not only say that electricity had real in ertia just as. real ,.s mater, but that there is no inertia but electricity, and that the inertia of matter had to be explained elec trically. In other. words, what we were now arriving at gradually was the electri cal theory of matter. ~ We were endeavor ing to explain the properties of matter in terms of and by means of what we know of electricity. - Although it might sgVnd a paradox to people who had' not studied physics, more was known about electricity than about matter. This idea of electric inertia first took shape in a mathematical paper by J. J. Thompson of Cambridge, which, when it appeared, in 1881, was simply regardied as a mere mathematical curiosity. He should also mention that Sir William Crookes had called attention to a phenom enon he had observed of matter in a fourth stage, which was neither soid, liquid, nor gaseous. Further research suggested the hypothesis, not yet by any means com pletely evolved, that all atoms of matter may be composed of these substances corpuscles or electrons. Passing rapidly through the various phe nomena found along the line of his sub ject, Sir Oliver referred to the important developments made by M. and Mme. Curie. in France. Having become familiar with the remarkable radiatory powers of ura nium, they then- discovered polonium and, later, radium, which had the property pos sessed by uranium in a most remarkable degree. The rays given off by this sub stance had marvelous penetrating powers, even more intense than the X-rays, and would blister the skin. They will penc trate not only aluminium or wood, but three-inch thickness of lead, and then be as strong as the rays from uranium. Sir Oliver Lodge finally endeavored to give some conception of the size of electrons, the smallest bodies.known, by asking his audience to conceive of the atom as being the size of a chunk 2t1 feet long. SA feet broad and 40 feet high, and the electron the size of a fullstop. DEFINITION OF A WATT. Necessary in Order to Save Temper of a Long Island City Justice. From the New York Times. Everybody connected with the first dis trict municipal court In Long Island City. from Justice Thomas C. 'Kadien down, has been burning the midnight gas delving deep into Elcctrical lore since the trial, a few days ago, of a suit brought by the New York and Queens County -Electric Light and PowEr Company againSt a consumer to re cover the amouf.t of a bill for power fur nished. Anmong the witnesses called by George W. Schootnmaker, counsel for the comphany, was an expert in electrical mat ters. "Now," said Mr. Schoonmaker in the course of the examination, addressing the witness. "will you pleas-e explain what a watt is?' - - "What?' asked Justice Kadieni. looking up suddenly from some papers before him. "Yes, yeu honor," returned the lawyer. "I satid w;hat," repeated the court, some what irritated. "Why, yes, that is it, your honor, and I have asked the witness to explain what a watt is." said *Mr. Schoonmaker, coolly. "Explain what?" asked the justice, begin ning to wax indignant. "What a watt is," replied the lawyer. The court was about to lose its patience when Mr'. Schoorimtaker saw the point and hastened to explain. "And he told that in the world of electricity a volt was the unit of measurement for pressure, an ampere the unit of measurement for volume and a watt the unit. of measurement based upon both pressure and volume. He was going into kilowatts and such things when the court suffered a short circuit, and the case was adjourned for the4day. Too Xuch Food. From the Loin'on Chroniele. In the Chinese proverb that most men dig their graves with their teeth, Mr. Arthur Pearson has support for the birthday opin ion he expressed as to the prevalence of overeating. The excessive consumption of food is shown by the late Lord Playfair's calculation -that all that a healthy man need eat in a week Is three pounds of meat with one pound of fat, two ordinary loaves, an ounce of salt and five pints of milk. In stead of the meat five or six pounds of oat meal may be substituted. Growing chil dren and young people require more food than the adult, for they have not only to maintain, but also to build up, their bodies. Yet the former are restricted in diet, though it is the grownup person who sins by glut tony. All doctors agree that ovreating is one of the chief causes of disease. If the rich were to eat no more than is necessary. the surplus would feed the starving poor of London and throw dozens of medical men out of employment. 'She Knew That He Knew. From Tit-Bits. George was caught napping. A pair of soft little hands covered his eyes ~and a sweet voice 'commanded: "Guess who it Nothing very dreadfu? for George In this, you think, but then you don't know that George has two sweethearts, and for the life of him couldn't decide whose voice it was, which made it a- very embarrassing situation for him. A wrong gums would lea to complications awful to think of. But a happy thought insapired George, and he announced -"It's the dearest, sweetest little girl in all the world."

A girl okid. is mnerely desig nated as number one, number two, number three, according to the number of girls there are in the family. The Mohammedans in naming their In fants leave the matter to chance. Putting several slips of paper containing names within the pages - of the Koran, and be rtowing the name first drawn. Is a popul.r eustom. The parents believe it better for a child to be named by blind fate than through their direct ministration. The Germans, especially the middle Mlasses, ofttimes change the name of a ehild If he Is sickly or if he does not seem to thrive. And this recalls an ancient American custom regarding a child's nam Ing. In the large families of the past it was quite customary when a young child lied to name the next born child after him. This custom was general even three gen erations ago. And it has been the cause of considerable bother to professional genealo gists when tracing family lines. A good many Americans are indifferent and slow-going In the naming of infants. The youngest of seven children in a cer tain family has only just received a name, and this because he is five years old and attending a kindergarten, making it neces sary to have rome other designation than the nursery diminutive that has clung to him since babyhood. The parents were un able to agree upon a name and put the matter off until the child - should be big enough to select one for himself. This he did by choosing the given name of the playmate wnom he liked best. PROTECTING BRITISH PAPER. The Way Forgeries of English Bank Notes Are Prevented. From Tit Bits. In the manufacture of bank notes the chief thing, of course, which the authori ties have to bear int mind is to make forgery impossible, or, at any rate, easy of detec tion. Strangely enough the Bank of Eng land practically relies on the simplicity of the design of their notes to detect forgeries. Whereas other countries long ago adopted the plan of having specially colored paper and employed various colored inks in the printing of their bank notes, England still sticks to the pure white, crisp paper and black ink which have been in use for the past two centuries. But, in spite of the plainness of the Bank of England note, no forger in the world has yet been successful in producing an exact facsimile. True, there have been at tempts, and for a time, perhaps, the forger has been successful in swindling the public. Eut no man has yet made a spurious Bank of England note which has not been detect ed almost as soon as it got within the walls of the Old Lady of Threadneedle Street. There is always some l'ttle defect in the forgery which is at once obvious to the bank official, although, of course, It may not be perceptible to the average man. In the first place, it is impossible for the forger to make or obtain a sample of the paper of which English bank notes are made. Gocd n.mitations have oeen produced, but their faults were at once apparent to the expert. For nearly 20 years past the official paper has beer manufactured by a secret process In a certain corner of Hampshire, where the notes are produced sometimes at the rate of :,t,) .er week. The paper is made from new linen and cotton, with certain chemicals the nature and proportions of which are a carefully-guarded secret. A curious feature of a Bank of England note, and one which no forger has ever been able to imitate. is that the paper is of vary ing thicknesscs in different parts of the note. It is a hand-made paper. and, as those who have handle: a hank note are sware. is remarkable for its strength, crisp uess and transparen.y. As a further guard against forgery, the ink with which the notes are printed is totally different to any other kind. Its special properties are ex treme blackness and inde:ibl!ity. The pecullar water-mark of an English aote. however, constitutes one (of the chief tueirds against forgery. This water-mark, which practically covers the whole of the tote, is impressed on it when the paper is n a condition o,f pulp. In the e:arly days of >ank notes this water-mark was produced by a large number of wires tastened to ;et her; but now plates of brass, stamped jut by a die of sp,ecially hardened steel, lave taken t-he place cf the wires. If banik notes are catrefully examine<d it will be observe] th-it the letters and nitn jers in the various water-marks differ, as well as the printed figures denoting the ,aue of the note. in uddition to the afore nentioned safeguards. however, there are nlany secret little points in the engraving of he genuine notes of which hankers are tware; but they ar^e so small that the iverage man wouli not probably notive heir absence in a fcrged note. There is also another little peculiarity In tentuine notes which helps the banker to ketect those which are false. The original sheets contain four notes. These are cut n half and t.wo notes printed at a time and lumbered automatically. They are then :ut again, and the result is that each note as two rough edges a.nd two smooth. Many ank officials are so expert that they know which edges on a note of a given num.ber should be rough and w'hich smooth. Conse tuently trnley are able at once to detect a luplicate. Volcanic Forces, "rom the London Chronicle. Dr. Tempest Anderson, who Investigated the recent eruptions In the West Indies along with Dr.' Flett on behalf of the Royal society and who has pttblished an interest ng volume dealing with volcanic phenom ma at large, has given a very succinct ac rount of the actual causation of the out breaks. Discarding French views, that electricity is a factor* in the process, Dr. A~nderson believes that a mass of molten natter rises in the volcanic tube or chim iey which ends in the crater. This mass s highly charged with water and gases, the iquid condition being maintained as a re muit of the intense pressure. As the molten matter is forced toward the heart of the rolcano the presure is lessened. Then as :he water and gases expand they explode nto powder so much of the mass, whIle )umice stone, described as "solidified ~roth," Is also ejected. After the explosion he lava escapes from the crater or forms side opening below it, and flows down he mountain slopes. A very Important ob tervation is that In which Dr. Anderson re marks that the distances between one truption and another depend on the rela lye proportions of these various adtions.
