Much light has been thrown on the proceses of digestion in the last few years by the investigations of Pavlov, a Russian physiologist, and others. These investigations have changed very materially our views of this process and have served to explain many things relating to food, especially why it is that every food faddist thrives equally on his own regimen. Stories are told of dysueusics living for years on carefully selected food of the bland est and "'most easily digestible" sort, and suffering misers, who suddenly conceived a longing for corned beef and cabage and surreptlously devoured a meal of it. To thsir delight as muc:: as to their surprise, there was nothing to pay for this yielding to the promp tings of nature; digestion was perfect ly performed for the first time in years. Such stories are not always anocry jhal; they may be founded on fact, and tliei.- explanation is the same as that of teh success of the food faddist. Pavlov found in experimenting un dogs thtat an abundance o fgastric 'juice was secreted whe nthey had food that they liked, eve nthough this food was mechanieallly prevented from en tering the stomach; whereas, when thev were fed on things they did not care for, but could eat only when half starved, the secretion of gastric juice was very scanty. This he called tha '"appetite juice,'" tho proces of the stomach being analogous to the famil ialr phenomenon of "watering in the mouth" of increased salivary secretion caused by the sight or sni"U of eavory food or even by the thought of it. He found also that the composition of the digestive fluids varied with the kind of foood, each article swallowed calling forth, through some mysterions sig nals tramsmitted to the etomach from the tongue and palate as soon as they had tasted the morsel placed i nthe mouth, just as the sort of fluid best adapted to its digestion. The enthu siastic appreciation by the dietetic crank of the unsavory foud which he iz persuaded will assure him strength niif long life gives him a taste for it, and so the motherly stoliach provides an f biindance of gastric juice of the proper composition and thereby rsaves him from otherwise inevitable conse quences of his folly. 'Good Housekeep- CASTOR I A Tor Infaat3 and Children. The Kind You Have Always Bought Bears Signatu: re of END OF IRON MOUNTAIN. FAMOUS ORE DEPOSIT OSLV A REDHiLL AO IF. It Ha Tnld ",000,000 to the Company Recently Dissolved Experts OnVc Said the Ore Was Inexhaustible A Tond Which Is Becoming; a Pictur esque Ruin. Nothing is left of the famous Iron Mountain save a mound and a mem ory. The Circuit Court of St. Fancios county dissolved the Iron Mountain Company recently upon unanimous petition of the stockholders, and the stallholders, and the assets have been divided and the concern has gone out of existence. That was the ultimate and final end of Iron Mountain as a mining proposition; says a Farming ton, Mo., correspondent of the St. Paul Pioneer Press. After half a century of action and inaction, ups and downs rapid growth and still more sapid decay, this most celebrated iron mine in the world, a mere wart on the surface of southeast Missouri, which paid more than $7,000,000 in dividends through its output of the basest and commonest of metals, enters irrevocably the past. Iron Mountain, however, still lives and will live in history. It belongs to the romantic record of world develop ment; it is an interesting chapter in the book of material progress; it had to do with the making of .mghty en terprises and the grow th of States and. the spreading of civilization into fron ter places. Nothng in the whole his tory of iron mining operations in the United States or elsewhere has oc cupied quite such a conspicious place as during its active lfe dd Iron Mountain, the nexhautible hill of ore that played out. Fifty years ago Government experts pronounced the iron ore in the moun tain "practically inexhaustible." Twenty-five years ago there 'were ex perts who held the same view'. It was believed that the entire mountain above ground and far into the bowels of the earth beneath the surface of the surrounding valley was a mass of almost, solid iron ore, averaging 65 per cent, pure iron. Thirteen years ago, however, the Iron Mounain Company suspended operations on the extensive scale of the preceding quarter of a century, and since then the taking out of ore had been carried on but spor adically and in comparatively small quantities. There Is still some ore left in the remains of the mountain, but not enough to work in paying quanti ties. Though the enthusiastic expectations of the earlier geoglogists were not to be realized, tho fact that the Iron Mountain Company, capitalized at $3,000,000, paid nearly 200 per cent, di vidends on its capitalization in about twenty-five years of active operations shows that this played out mountain was by no means a failure. From a hill 228 feet high, its base covering about 500 acres, and from an adjoining knoll called Little Iron Mountain, much smaller in area, a production of $7,000,000 in iron is in every sense re markable. When Iron Mountain first began to yield ore, sixty-one years ago, its lo cation was practically a wilderness. The country was but sparcely settled. The roads were merely dim trails through the woods and up and down tho rocky hills. There were, of course no railroads. It was not until 1858 that the St. Louis; Iron Mountain and Southern Railroad was built from St. Louis to Iron Mountain and a little later ex tended to Pilot Knob to haul the ores to St. Louis. For many years the company main tained an immense blast furnace at Irondale, twelve miles north, where millions of tons of pig iron were manufactured. This furnace founded and built the town of Irondale, whicn became almost a deserted village about thirty years ago, when the fur nace closed down, but latterly has re covered considerably as a fanning community. For miles in every direc tion from Irondale the heavy timber was cut off and burned into charcoal for use in the blast furnaces. Thirty or forty years ago the coa"l wagon; with a huge bed built in the shape of a barge, the sides sloping outward, was a familiar sight on country roads. The timber was burn ed to charcoal in pits on the land where it was cut. These pits were merely stacks of wood, built up to a height of about wenty feet, conical in shape and covered with leaves and earth. Fires were started in tho inter ior and the wood was burned to a char. The Iron Mountain Company owned land reaching two and one-half miles in every direction from Iron Moun tain. The wood from this land was cut off for charcoal and the company also purchased the timber from thousands of acres owned by other parties and made charcoal of it. Since the aband onment of the furnaces a new growth of trees has succeeded the once heavy forests, but most of the timber Is still too light to be used for lumber. The town of Iron Mountain in its palmy days was a mining camp of unique interest. Though the town contained approximately 6,000 people, including perhaps 2.000 miners and furnace hands, there was practically no rowdyism. About fifteen years ago the town began to dwindle and after the practical suspension of operations in 1903 the dwindling process was quite rapid. At present the population numbers scarcely 100 and for several years; until two months ago, even the, post office was abandoned and the few remaining people received their mail at Middlebrook, three miles south At present there is not a single store or business institution in Iron Moun tain. A few of the old dwelling houses re main, mute and pathetic witnesses of a greater past. Blue grass has grown up in the old streets to the doors of the deserted dwellings and the grass affords fine pasturage for horses, cattle, sheep and hogs, which roam the deserted village. Iron Mountain itself what remain of it presents many features of cur ious interest. Passengers on the Iron Mountain Raiiroadj when the trains pass the little station are attracted I by a curious slope of red soil east of the tracks. This big mound, scarcely eighty feet high, is all that remains of Iron Mountain. The surface is rid ged and gullied by the rains of many years. Here and there may be seen the ruins of the old furnaces and re duction plants, the blacksmith shops, the old "company store," the deserted Catholic church; the joint Masonic and Oil Fellows' hall and other struc tures that tell of a former city. Tourists frequently stop off at the station to walk or drive about the abandoned works, but they seldom take the trouble to climb to the top of the old red mound. This climb will repay any visitor. One of the most re markable lakes in the world two of them, in fact may be seen in the crater of the mountain. After the bulk of the mountain had been vashd down by hyraulic pressure to get out the ore, great bodies of rock were blasted from the interior of the moun tain, starting at the top. These huge holes went down several hundred feet, the rock being rich in iron. In this crater-like opening in Iron Mountain proper there is now a' lake about two acres in extent and there is a similar like in Little Iron Mountain. The lat ttr is smaller in surface area, but deeper than the former, the water be ing 250 feet in depth and perfectly clear. It is a beautiful blue lake of cold water, fed by vdns far down in the mountain. On each side the wans of stone rise at places to a height of 100 feet. Along the edges at sloping points grass has managed to grow. The lakes make a picturi that shoulu woo the landscape artist, A few of the old timers who yet re main at Iron Mountain tell remark able stories of the richness of the ore. They will show the visitor pocket knife blades, nails, horseshoes, books and rings that were beaten out of the native ore without smelting at a black smith shop. The authenticity of these claims is well supported by r:liabl- men, who actually saw the black smiths hammering the ore Into ob jects of use. YALE BASKET BALL. Twenty Four Games on Resnlar Schedule.

A recent issue of the lAl'gano (la) Courier has the following obituary no tice of a firmer resident of Middle bury Conn., one who is remembere-d by many of the older people of the town: "Dwight Hine died last Tuesday evening at the residence of his son-in-law and daughter, Mr and Mrs James Patterson, after an illness of 14 weeks. He lay down 14 weeks agi, and ever since then his strong nature and great vitality, struggled . with .the forces of decay, and at last yielded as all life must yield. ; '.'Dwight Hine came of sturdy Yan kee stock. He was 'born at Middle bury, Conn, on March 24, 1818, -and at his death was 88 years and 7 months ol. He grew up on the farm and be ing unusually, robust and very indus trious he did the hardest kind t.;f work and more of it than an ordinary man could do. At the age of 22 he was married . to Miss Betsie Tyler. He soon after moved to Waterbury, Conn, and there ran a meat market five years. The family then moved to Iowa, in 1869, and Mr. Hine bought a section of land in BJiverdale township, the one now owned by the Heidercheit boys. He lived there three and a half years and then sold the land and moved to Algona where he has since resided. The children uf the family were two sons and one daughter. The boys died early in life, and the daughter Mary, became the wife of James Patterson, with whom Mr. Hine 'made his home Eilnce the death of h'is wife, which oc curred 17 years ago, and where he re ceived every care and kindness possi ble to bestow. He was a sturdy char acter and lived a correct and blame less life, and was fi'mi his youth a member of the Congregational Church.
