IP L| VOL 88 STAUNTON, VA., FRIDAY, NOVEMBER 12 1909. j §g= NO. 46 LEFT-HANDED PEOPLE ARE WEAKEST IN BRAIN AT LEAST A GERMAN SCIENTIST WHO INVESTIGATED SAYS THIS IS SO. Berlin.—Dr. Shier, an eminent Ger man physiologist, has published some interesting particulars of investigations he has made among several thousands of left-handed people in all walks of life. His principal facts he draws from carefully made investigations in the army, in which the military authories aided him-in every way in their power, and he had ample time to work out his conclusions. He selected various actions among hundreds of others as certain tests of left-handedness—bread-cutting, thread ing needles, cracking a whip and shuf fling cards. The man who does these things with his left hand is hopelessly left-handed. Professor Shier found that in the vast majority of cases it is not a more high ly developed muscular arrangement in the left hand and arm which causes left-handedness; in fact, in 77 per cent, of the cases examined he found that the right arm and hand were the stronger. He-found that left-handedness in a large number of cases is inherited. A left-handed man is bound to have a certain number of his children of a like habit. He reckons that 50 per cent. o* left-handed persons had left-handed parents, and than this peculiarity is in herited by three times as many boys as Especially remarkable is the combi nation of stuttering with left-handed ness. In fourteen regiments he found 1,237 left-handed persons, of whom nearly 1,000 had some impediment in speech or other form of nervous dis order, some of which are only notice able in quite young children and which are got rid of with adolescence. Coming to mental capacity, Profes sor Shier says there is ground for believ ing that the proportion ot mentally in firm people is far greater among left handed than among ambidextrous ■ Forced Into Exile.

Revision for The Editors. Under the Dingley law the rate on print paper was $6 per ton. A Wash ington dispatch to the Lincoln (Neb.) Journal says that under the new law and as a result of recent treasury regulations the rate on paper coming from the province of Ontario will be 15.75 per ton and on the print paper from Quebec something more than $6 per ton. In one case the reduction is merely nominal while in the other an actual increase has been brought about. The Journal's dispatch adds that if, as it is likely, the maximum rate be ap plied against Ontario the duty on print paper from that province would be run up to $8.50, a marked increase over the Dingley rate. As a result of these dis closures republcan papers are making vigorous complaints. Will republicans never learn that it is not possible for the consumers to obtain relief at the hands of a political party that is fi nanced by the consumer's oppressors? —The Comoner. Kills Her Foe of 20 Years, "The most merciless enemy I had for 20 years," declares Mrs. Jas. Dun can of Haynesville, Me., "was dyspep sia. I suffered intensely after eating or drinking and could scarcely sleep. After many remedies had failed and several doctors gave me up. I tried Electric Bitters, which cured me com pletely. Now I can eat anything. 1 am 70 years old and am overjoyed to get my health and strength back again. For indigestion, loss of appe tite, kidney trouble, lame back, fe- R plaints, it's uncqualed. Only F. Hughes'. ~ in physician has created some , stir among his professional by the following statement: ation for appendicitis should be called a criminal operation and as such should be prohibited by law. I have been following the records of ap pendicitis operations ever since the craze for this form of surgery started, and I confidently believe that the day is coming when the people will realize that the cutting of the appendix is a criminal operation. After the widely proclaimed benefits and saving of life by operations to cut the appen iix, it seems hardly necessary to cite the long list of deaths followiug the operation." Southern Medical Asso.

IT BOTANICAL GARDEN, SHED BY JOHN BARTRAM IN 0, IT STILL c New York Sun. st botanical garden in Ameri stablished near Philadelphia 30 by John Bartram, a Quaker, i also the first native American botanist. It was a small affair (the entire property comprised only tive acres) and a part of the limited space was occupied by the house, built by his own hands; but the garden was a remarkable project indeed for those days, and is known to have contained many choice specimens. William Bartram, son of John, is perhaps better known as a botanist be cause of the fact that his account of his extended travels in the Southern At lantic States was published and con tains many important observations up on the plants of the regions explored by him. He maintained the garden es tablished by his father and after his death the property remained in the hands of owners who were deeply con cerned in its preservation for many During a short period of neglect seri ous damage was done to the old gard en, but within the last twenty years it has become the property of the city of Philadelphia and is now a city park. According to the Journal of the New- York Botanical Garden its collection of trees and shrubs has always been notable and the old house is still in an excellent state of preservation. The seaond American botanic gard en in North America was also near Philadelphia and was established in 1773 by Humphry Marshall, a first cousin of John Bartram, and like him a Quaker. The old garden has long since passed into a state of decay, but the house built by Marshall with his own hands in 1773 is still in an excell ent state of preservation. Humphry Marshall has the'distinction of having written the first botanical work ever published in the United States, an account of our native .trees and shrubs, printed at Philadelphia in the latter part of the year 1785. ♦- < 4* > a I What a Small Farm Did Richmond Times-Dispatch: Here is a recent instance that came under our observation, illustrating how in tensive farming pays. A man, who owned a little land in Pulaski county added to it from time to time, until he had a little farm of 60 acres. He was then past middle life, and, had he followed the old traditions, he would have raised of corn and tobacco, would have sold a few cattle, and would have been poor .the rest of his life. But this man was a revolu tionist. He determined to make that farm yield a comfortable living. He figured that he could only afford to raise the highest class of produce on so limited an acreage. Hiring a Negro, and buying a team, he set to work with his sons. Here are some of the crops he raised- From a quarter acre planted in straw berries he picked 35 bushels, that sold for 13.20 per bushel. Three acres of raspberries yielded him more than $600. Three acres of apple trees were made to bring 1,800 bushels. A few unoccupied acres put in grass, fattened cattle valu ed at §200 to $300 per annum. He like wise raised 600 bushels of potatoes in a single season, while keeping up his other crops. Strawberry plants and shade tree slips yielded $250, while poultry and eggs brought another $100. In addition, he raised his entire provi sions and fed his team. The other results were foregone. He educated all of his sons and daughters, traveled at his leisure, and protected his Laces and Embroideries. The New York 5 and 10 cent store j has just received a new shipment o aces and embroideries, ladies' collars pillow tops, towels and table linens. DAVIS & HOLT, 15 N.

It is not words, but deeds thatjprove The deeds of Doan's Kidney Pills, for Staunton kidney sufferers, have made their local reputation. Proof lies in the testimony of Staun ton people who have been cured to stay cured. William L. Rohr, 1041 Front street, Staunton, Va., says: "I used Doan's Kidney Pills, and the results were sat isfactory. Kidney complaint was with me for a long time and I suffered from severe pains in my back and sides. Stooping or lifting caused sharp twings to dart through me and I had to have assistance in getting out of bed. The kidney secretions were very irregular in passage, and I had but little control over them. I tried sev eral advertised remedies, but received no relief until I procured Doan's Kid ney Pills at Thomas Hogshead's drug store. 1 continued taking Doan's Kidney Pills until I was completely cured. I publicly recommended Doan's Kidney Pills six years ago, and to-day I am pleased to state that the cure has remained permanent." For sale by all dealers.

Hudson in his book on the "Land's End," on the sands of Whitesand bay, working at a marine picture, when two natives I came up and planted themselves just behind him. There was nothing the artist hated more than to be watched by strangers over his shoulders in this way, and pretty soon he wheeling around on them and angrily asked them how long they were going to stand there. His manner served to arouse their spirit, and they replied brusquely thai they were going to stay as long as they thought proper. He insisted on knowing just how long they were going to stay there to his annoyance, and by and by, after some more loud and angry discussion one of them incautiously declared they would stand at that very spot for an hour. "Do you mean that?" shouted Hook, pulling out his watch. Yes, they returned, they would not stir one inch from that spot for aa hour. "Very well," he said and pulled up his easel; then, marching off to a dis tance of thirty yards, he get it up again and resumed his painting. And there, within thirty yards of I his back, the two men stood for one hour and a quarter, for, as they did not have a watch, they were afraid of going away before the hour had ex pired.
