Al though there was no formal expres sion from the administration officials it became known today that the president and Secretary Bryan are ofposed to floating any loans in the United States for the benefit of any belligerent powers n Europe. Both the president and Mr. B-yan have studied the situation arising out of the inquiry of J. P. Morgan & Co. as to -what would be the atti tude of the administration in case certain banking interests' which had approached them should try to float a loan for the French government. Mr. Bryan would not discuss the subject, referring inquirers to the bankers for information. Later when a statement was issued by Morgan & Co. and shown to Mr. Bryan, he said, "We have no announcement to make." In view of the estimation of the Morgan statement that the state de jartment might desire to refrain from any expression of opinion so as not to commit the government to any policy. Secretary Bryan was asked if his reticence was to be in terpreted to mean that nothing more would be said about it by the de partment. "I cannot say anything about the future," he answered. Persons close to the administra tion said there would probably be no expression on the subject because of a desire nut to offend, even by inference, the French government, which happened to be mentioned as the prospective borrower. It is nev ertheless generally understood that the president and Bryan disapprove of the idea of loaning money in any form to any of the belligerents, whether the money be used as credit tor the purchase of American pro ducts, or for the ultimate purchase of war supplies. SNAKE EMPTIES STATION Frightened by the sudden appear ance of a rattlesnake eight feet long crawling across the floor of the waiting-room, several hundred persons were thrown into a semi-panic in Broad. Street Station early last even ing. The discovery of the snake was made almost simultaneously by a score of. persons, and it was not necessary to give the alarm more than once. Amid the shrieks of frightened women, commuters and travelers fled hurriedly for the exits, and in a re markably short time both the waiting room and train-shed lobby of the big station were deserted, except for the snake and a few courageous trainmen. The snake, apparently as badly scared an were the fleeing throngs, also nttmnted trt mnko n p'et-nwnv. After a short- struggle-, C. W. Stevens and Darvtd Roberts, two employees of the station, captured the reptile on the bridge, over Market street, and placed it in a bag. They took it to the city hall, but the police authorities refused to take charge of it Arrangements were then made to send the rattler to the Zoo. It took some time before quiet was restored in the station. Em ployees of the terminal declared that it made them shudder to think what would have happened had the snake wandered into the bar attached to the station restaurant. It is believed that the snake arrived here in an express car containing a consignment of fruit. Railroad offi cials declare that no shipments of snakes have been made here recently.

Within a week the paper value of the stocks of the company increased five million dollars In value. This unthinkable sum will hardly prove of solace to that tempted creature who confessed that for a paltry $2 he helped to give away the streets of the people of the Missouri metropolis. He may think of it, per haps but he may be sure that those sleek, fattened masters of finance, whose tool he was, will never think of him, as he toils away his life in the jute mills. So absurd and antiquated are our methods of dealing with real crime that the courts never look beyond the bundle of rags which was caught red-handed in his illicit quest for food. It did not ask who hired him. It did not trace the trail that might have led to the mahogany offices wherein the crime was planned. The police took the $2 from the repeater. They did not take the millions away from the big looters. It is still a matter of shame that our civilization has not yet put money and jail into the same diction ary when referring to the theft of public franchises. If there is any satisfaction to be had from looking at the pitiful spec tacle of a hungry tramp behind bars, the people of Kansas City may have it while reaching into their pock ets for more nickels to pay interest on stolen millions.

Many have been the attempts to interview Lord Kitchener. About these the best story is that of the Yankee who handed his card to the general when he returned from South Africa, with the remark, "Sir, I rep resent that paper." "How interesting," responded Lord Kitchener, turning his back on the would-be interviewer. Another story comes from Aber deen. Lord Kitchener was discovered ono morning at Aberdeen station, having arrived there on his way to Balmoral by the night express. The youngest reporter of the evening paper was on the platform, and ap proached the great man, explaining that he represented a local journal. "Glad to meet you," said his lord ship. "Now tell me, do yon know Aberdeen well?" "Yes," said the youth, delighted to find his victim so complaisant. "Excellent," said Lord Kitchener. "Then you can tell me where I can find a good barber, one who really shaves well." "Oh, yes," replied the newspaper man, and he led his lordship to a barber's shop. His lordship thanked him much, but the youth interposed with a request that he might state he had" spoken to Lord Kitchener. He hoped for more of an interview. "Certainly," responded the field marshal heartily, "and you can add that you are the most obliging and intelligent inhabitant of Aberdeen I have ever met!" The iad went back to his editor rather shamfacedly with his tale, but the expert was enthu siastic. "Write every word," he com manded, and himself supplied a string of headlines, in which "Lord Kitchener in . Aberdeen Interview with our representative this morn ing" were the least.

UTILIZING THE FARMER'S AUTOMOBILE Hitching an automobile to a plow has been tried with more or less suc cess, but a newly invented tractor makes it possible to keep a light car steadily employed for such heavy work, without undue strain upon the machine. Any pleasure car of medium horse-power can be used for the pur pose, so that the farmer's automobile, which carries him to town as a pleas ure vehicle, can be hitched to the plow when not . used for traveling on the road. The tractor which makes this possible is a two-wheel affair with a mechanism for reducing the gear, so that the speed is brought down to about four miles, while the engine runs at a rate that would be equiva lent to a twenty-five-mile gait. The power is increased in proporation as the speed is reduced, and in this way the pulling power is tremendous, be- Apples Apples Special Price on New Apples Skinner Seedlings, Box, $1.65 Arizona Grocery Go.

The tractor ia composed of a massive frame upon which the rear half of the automobile is lifted bodily, the back wheels of the car being six inches above the ground. This leaves very little strain on the front wheels, as they merely steer the outfit, and there is no excessive wear upon the tires. Of course, the rear tires receive no wear at all. The gear on the rear wheel of the automobile ia bolted upon the hub. The tractor wheels are six feet in diameter and of very broad tread, which may be wider or narrower, according to the nature of the ground on which it works. To this is attached the plow, cultivators, or other farm machinery. St. Nicho las. Several major league clubs were eager to sign Martin, the Georgetown university shortstop.
