JOPLIN, Mo., April 24.—Secretary of Labor Perkins went 345 feet un derground on a tour of Investiga tion into health and working condi tions in the Missouri-Kansas-Okla homa tri-State lead and zinc mining area. She came yesterday to check up on a report by the Tri-State Survey Committee of New York, issued sev eral months ago. The committee charged silicosis was prevalent and that many of the miners lived in squalor. Silicosis is a lung disease caused by rock dust. The secretary watched miners at work in the Ballard mine of the St. Louis Smelting and Refining Co., two miles southwest of Baxter Springs, Kans. She said she would name a com mittee to explore the possibility of a compact by the three States to control working conditions in the area. "You have made some progress." she told operators, “but you still have a part of that problem (work ing conditions) with you. In Treece, Kans., Miss Perkins talked with three miners, all of whom said silicosis had afflicted most of the members of their fam ilies, and wtih three widows who said their husbands had died of sili cosis or tuberculosis.

Nature’s Children California Wood Rat By LILLIAN COX ATHET. Wood rats belong to a very large group and are to be found dis tributed nearly all over North America. They are easily recognized because they have a slaty coat, pure white under parts and a heavily haired tail, which is, of course, most unusual for a rat. In fact, the only one they may be confused with is the Norway rat. Wood rats, no matter where you find them, adapt themselves to their surroundings and make the most of their opportunities. They are not scavengers or plague distributors. They are of a very different genus from the common rat and should not be thought of as animals that are to be feared or disliked, for — * /•* these creatures are as clean and fastidious ris squirrels. Those who have had to eat them say the meat is tender and has no musky flavor. What interests all those who have studied the family habits of these creatures are their strange homes and the sites some of them select for the dwellings. That they will go to much trouble to build a residence and labor for long, weary hours is an established fact. Their choice of certain building material is some times evidence that the builder used what may be termed Intelligence of a high order. When the home must be con structed, the building material at hand is considered first, and usually it is the amount that particularly appeals to the architect, for the home of these rodent* is no small, flimsy affair. A home 4 or 5 feet high is not unusual. When you take into the picture the size of the builder and that everything must be carried, dragged or hauled into position by one lone worker, your admiration increases as you size up the compact dwelling. The total length of this rodent is about 15 inches. Its food consists of green vegetation and seeds. It lives a life of industry and avoids many hostilities. If cornered, it will fight, and in self-defense, it will bite, making fairly deep wounds. The early morning hours find it searching everywhere for treasure it may carry home.
