O'CONNOR Latest Novelties in Tobacco Jars and Pipe Racks j at Burford's Americans Lead In the Philanthropies of 1912 j f The year 1912 was notable for the large number of benefactions for edu cational and philanthropic purposes. The total benefactions accruing from amounts of $10,000 up, were approxi mately $302,000,000. It is probable that the sum of the lesser donations would reach about $25,000,000, mak ing $327,000,000 in all. These figures exceed the preceding year by $152,000, 000. Kducational works were the most popular channel for the distribution of money; hospitals aud the care of the aged came next, with gifts for religious enterprises a close third. Besides the known amounts there were innumerable donations by per sons whose identity was not disclosed or disclosed to only a few. I In England during the year 1912 the benefactions aggregated only about $20,000,000. The American benefactions would more than pay for a year's mainte nance or the Army and Navy. The aggregate is more than the capital of the Bank of England or of the Im perial Bank of Germany, and exceeds the amount of money in the Sub Treasury in New York. During tho past twelve years $1, 502,000,000 has been given away in thiB country?which if distributed to all of the inhabitants of the earth would be 92 cents for each individual, or it would supply $16.33 to each in habitant of the continental United States. * * ?

Crane, a scientist of note I and a member of the faculty of the * University of Pennsylvania, who is j in Alaska investigating coa' resourc es of the territory in the interests of j Outside capitalists, has become great- j !y interested in the placer gold depos- i its located on the Kenai river. 1 Prof. Crane returned to Seward re- i cently and speaks in glowing terms ot the country and the panning that he i did while out. Prof. Crane declares that the Kenai ; river is soon destined to become one of the greatest dredging fields in the world, and expresses his surprise that big capital has not grabbed all of the valuable ground. "I panned on the river from the up per Kenai river to the lower lake and got gold in every pan that I took and some of the pans showed a mighty fine placer prospect indeed," 'Prof. Crane said. There is an abundance of black sand, and I have seldom seen fine gold that separates from the black sand as easily as the deposits on the Kenai river. "At the head of the river we found coarse gold, but I notice that as we went down the river the gold kept get ting finer and finer, although the pans appeared to be of apparently the same value. High up on the hills on the, < ower river I found in the pan coarse ;old that was rough and sharp cor lered, showing that it was not long h-ee from the ledge. "There is every evidence of quart/, ledges on the hills back of the lower lake, and I will be greatly surprised If some very valuable mining property is not developed in this section in the near future. "The greatest drawback to the thor ough prospection of that section of the country is the thick moss that . covers everything, making it hard to locate the ledges. 1 examined one property where the owners are work ing on a four-foot ledge of high grade gold-bearing quartz that would be con sidered a sensational showing were It anywhere but in Alaska, and up here It is looked on as a very ordinary showing. 1 think it is very valuable property. "I also visited the dredging ground that was recently taken over by the German Syndicate of Seattle and was surprised at the uniform richness of the gravel. I think that the Kenai peninsula is the richest mineralized country that I ever visited, and I pre dict that within the next few years you will have a big, rich, prosperous quartz camp with the Kenai river sur prising the dredging end of the mining world." WHY IS WHOOPING COUGH?! CAMBRIDGE, Mass., Jan. 15. ?; Frank Burr Mallory, associate pro fessor of pathology at the Harvard1 Medical School, has definitely proved | that the symptoms of whooping cough i are caused by the bacillus pertussi. | bits and children. He has experimented on puppies, rab The bacilli form rather sticky col onies, apparently mat the cilia togeth er and interfere with their normal movements. They thus cause a con stant irritation, which brings about spasmodic coughing, terminating in a ~ violent intake of air, which is the whoop. Dr. J. A. Honeij, another Harvard man, is studying leprosy at. Penikese island, where guinea pigs, horses, cows and other animals are used for his ex periments. WILL CLOSE AT SIX The patrons of the C. W. Young Co., and the general public, are noitfied that the store will be closed at six o' ? clock on Saturday night during the winter months. 3t "COMMANDED BY GOD" TO CUT HIS ARM OFF BUFFALO, Jan. 15. ? Harry Pull man. twenty-three years old, of Brook lyn, iB in a serious condition at a lo cal hospital from the loss of his left arm, which was severed by the wheels of a trolley car. "I purposely put my left arm under the wheels of a street car in order to have is cut of," said Pullman in a sworn statement. '"I was commanded by God to do this and I did it of my own free will. I am not a drinking man. I knew and realized what 1 was doing." The "accident" was a mystery until Pullman made his statement on re covering consciousness.
