laboratory building, with an overflow on
the second floor.

Pieces of mechanism, the names of which
were absolutely unintelligible to the lay

meter ever invented for use in connec
tion with electricity was included in the
Of particular interest was the displav

Navy Department and are built to be
packed i:p and carried in the tield on
Wireless Phone a Feature.
A wireless telephone outfit which is
said to have been tested with absolutely
satisfactory results over a sending and
receiving distance of COO miles attracted
much attention. This device, it was
stated, has been adopted for use by one
of the European powers, and the maker
of the device has offered it to the United i
States government for use in the event
of actual field operations in Mexico.
A display of radium, radium salts and
radioactive substances was another in
teresting feature of the big exhibit. This
display, located in a dark room from I
which every ray of natural or artificial |
light was excluded, contained $30,Oft)

greenish glow through these substances.

In the center of this narrow, winding, dirty street of a certain Central
American city lives a fortunate and plethoric politician who has the exclu
sive right to sell the country's postage stamps. Visitors to this capital city,
when directed to the national post office, tramp down the main boulevard in
the expectation of soon beholding a magnificent public building. When they
turn into the alley shown above, and finally venture into the stamp baron's
wavering castle, they realize the full force of the aphorism that governments
vary according to people and circumstances.
Two Witnesses Give Views Before
Senate Committee?Inquiry
to Continue.
The tnteroceanic canals committee of
the Senate failed to complete the hear
ings on the .Panama canal tolls repeal
bill yesterday afternoon, and the hearings
will continue tomorrow. William R.
Wheeler of San Francisco, recognized as
an authority'on traffic matters, will take
the stand tomorrow. W. D. Skinner of
Seattle, Wash'., and Russell Dunn of Cali
fornia were heard yesterday afternoon

Not Regarded as Subsidy.
A charge that tolls on American coast
wise vessels passing through the Panama
canal would, be' an embargo on Pacific
coast lumber in eastern markets in the
interest of southern lumber was made
yesterday afternoon before the Senate
interoceanic canals committee by Mr.
Skinner, who is a lumberman of Seattle.
He declared the situation should not be
viewed from, the standpoint that exemp
tion from . toU? VY3S. a subsidy to ship

an embargo on coastwise shipping
through the canal.
Replies to Lumberman.
Senator Simmons introduced, after Mr.
Skinner's testimony, a letter from Robert

i Mail Clerk. Hurt in Line of Duty,
Has Disability Removed.
An executive order issued yesterday au
thorized the reinstatement of James W.

"Mr. Cole was appointed March C, 1901,

until July 30, 1910. upon one of the heavy
lines of the railway mail service. His
record was good. On the latter date,
while on duty, he was seriously injured
in a wreck and although he has now en
tirely recovered. ? he-did not -recover stiffi
j ciently during: the period of eligibility
j fixed by- the civil service rules to permit
I his reinstatement. He was thus forced
j out of the service by an injury incurred
in the line of duty.
"In view of these facts and of the
statement of the department that his re
instatement will be in the interests of the
service, the commission concurs with the
department in recommending an exec

Take Salts to Flush Kidneys if)
Back Hurts or Bladder
If you must have your- ? meat
every day., eat it. but flush your
kidneys with salts occasionally,
says a noted authority who tells '
us that meat forms uric acid which 1
almost paralyzes the kidneys in
their efforts to expel it from the
blood. They ' become sluggish
and weaken, then you suffer with
a dull misery in the kidney region,
sharp pains in the back or sick
headache, dizziness, your stomach
sours, tongue is coated and when j
the weather is bad yot have rheu- j
matic twinges. The urine gets |
cloudy, full of sediment, the chan
nels often get sore and irritated,
obliging you to seek relief two or
three times during the night.
To neutralize these irritating j
acid-i, to cleanse the kidneys and
flush off the body's urinous waste,
get four ounces of Jad Salts from
any pharmacy here; take a table
spoonful in a glass of water be- ,
fore breakfast for a lew days and
your kidneys will then act fine.
This famous salts is made from
the acid of-grapes atid lemon juice, i
combined with lithia, and has been
used for generations to flush and i
stimulate sluggish kidneys, also to
neutralize the acids in urine, so it 1
no logger irritate, thus ending'
bladder weakness.
Jad Salts is inexpensive; can
not injure, and makes a delightful
effervescent .lithia-water drink.
