Corporation Commission Con
ducts Series of Experiments on Railroads. BLACK SQUIRREL CLAIMED Recognizes Its Owner?Army Officers for Instruction Camps. For the purpose of proving to its own satisfaction '.he difference, if any. of loss in handling crated and un crated stoves by freight, the State Corporation Commission has been con luctlng n series of experiments cover 'ng a period of three months. The abject is to reacli a determination of the case now Pentling before the com? mission. On petition of the Southern Railway a hearing was had on.a propo.-ition to require all stoves shipped in less than carload lots to be crated. The | claim of the railway was that articles' shipped uncrated were liable to ? breakage In a errat degree, and that ! it would be better for the shipper and) the consignee, as well as saving the ? railroads Crom unnecessary loss, to require protection on all shipments. At the hearing an agent of the Southern produced a box which con? tained a badly broken stove. it was carried Into the courtroom, and its multifarious parts were exhibited vntil Judgj Frentis humorously an? nounced that the commission would concede that the stove had been broken. Desiring further Information, the commission directed a record to be kept for three months of all ship? ments of stoves, crated and uncrated, i covering the length of the haul, the | damage and the cost. This. It is pre SUmed, will largely Infiuenre the deel- j slon. which is expected to be rendered shortly. BLACK SQUIRREL CLAIMED Natural Curiosity Recognise* Mm Owner on Sight. It did not require a Solomon to de? cide the ownership of the black squir? rel which was found in a rlow factory Saturday and presented to Colonel John vv. Richardson, Superintendent of the Capitol Square. The squirrel himself furnished the proof of the identity of his master. A resident of Kast Clay Street called on Colonel Richardson yesterday morn? ing, having read the story of the black squirrel In The Times-Dispatch of Sunday. He said the animal was his, nnd he was led to the cage, where the little fellow was conllned The squirrel has a temper of its own. nnd manifested rage when ap? proached by any of the Capitol em? ployes. But when this newcomer ap? peared he showed every symptom of delight He crowded to the. edge of the cage nearest the man. giving vent to a sort of low chuckle. When the door was opened he cllmhed on tlio man's arm' affectionately circled Ills head and ni ck. and ensconced himself in one of the coat pockets, whence ho gar.cu as If at home. "He's yours; take him," said Colonel Richardson. The man explained that he had re? cently brought the squirrel to l.lch mbnd from North Carolina, on moving here. The animal was caught In the woods, and was presented to him. It is evidently a hybrid. He frequently uas absented himself from home for a few hours at a time, but on the last occasion he evidently got so far away that he could not find his Way back. The owner seid he would later release him in the Capitol Square to see If he will fraternize with his gray cousins. KING NOT COMING Army Ollleers Are Assigned to Ylr Klula Instruction Camps.

Washington, .inly in.?"Mot, dry . weather, drought have played some? thing akin to havor. with the crop con? ditions during the lust month," de? clared Professor N. t". Murray, acting chief of the crop reporttng bom-1 of the Department of Agriculture, p'-day, after the announcement of the July report on grain and produce. "The report," said Professor Murray, "reflects the rather serious effects of the drought during June, most of the important crops showing a condit'ott ut present which indicates a yield be? low that of last year and below recent average yield of production. "Feed-stuff???ats and hay?seems to have been hardest hit. Less than two thirds of a normal crop of hay is ex? pected and the oats crop probably will j be more than "5 per cent, loss than last year's crop, and about 12 per cent, less than the average for the last live years. i "The corn acreage Is the largest ever recorded, but the condition of the crop Is about " per cent, below t :ie average. That Indicates a production of approximately r> per cent, less than last jear's record crop, but nearly per cent, more than the average pro? duction during the last five yean The condition of the corn crop on Inly l. however, was critical "The potato crop promises tr> be USttnlly short. The acreage has fallen off. probably on account of unsatis fartor; prices during the las', year, and the condition of the cron now is I lower than at any time on July 1 In I the last twenty-two years Almost a I sensational advance in the price of j potatoes has been made durinv the 1 last month. The average prl-e ' throughout the United States on June 1 vas f3.8 cents a bushel. On July 1 is was !'f..3 cents a bushel. Ordtnu-.-'ly tht variation In that time Is only a few cents a bushel. "Owing to the difficulty in the set I ting out of tobacco plants, the acre i age of tobacco has been reduced 2S per cent, from that of l^st year. The low condition of the crop, together j with the shortacre of acreage, have combined to reduce the Indications to a total production of 63.3 per cent, of last year's crop, or 77.3 per cent, of the average for the last five years. "Notwithstanding the drought, tho wheat crop, both spring and winter, will be well up to the average in total production It is scarcely likely that the amount of wheat In bushels will vary a great deal from the average of the last live years.

DISPOSAL OF SEWAGE Health Department Tells or Effect of Prosperity on Home. : In Issuing its latest bulletin. "Sew I age Disposal Plants for Private ; Homes," the state Health Department ha? made the occasion one for a little homily on life in general. It Is as follows: "The prosperity of a people Is always mirrored In their domestic life. Glvon a discouraged community, low pries. Hull markets or bad seasons, and the home Inevitably suffers. Luxuries are eliminated; the average comforts of life nre reduced; even the simplest conveniences are neglected. On 'lie other hand, given a prosperous community, high prices, brisk markets or good seasons, and the home Invariably ben? efits. Luxuries are introduced, home comfort Is greatly increased, conven? iences of every sort are in demand. "The grout prosperity and marked progress of this Commonwealth dur? ing the last few years has proved this general principle. In no similar period has there been such a notable Increase In domestic comfort: at no time has there been such a demand for the conveniences of the age. Fore- ! most, perhaps, among the demands of! our rural population has been that to i secure running water In the house, i Bath rooms are being built: water tow-] ers nre rising above thousands of ] wells on Virginia farm's; our people are awakening to the fart that sanl- !

DOUBLE CAPACITY AT SANATORIUM State Health Board to Consider Proposition To-Day?Members Go to Catawba.

The committee's report is vigor? ous in Its handling of the matter, and urgent In Its Insistence that the State board ask the next Legislature for funds wit!) which to prosecute this en? terprise for the protection of the pub? lic health. ? It is a shame." said Dr. W. M. ' Smith, of Alexandria, chairman of the committee, to a Times-Dispatch repre? sentative yesterday "that a public in? stitution for the treatment of a dis? ease which is curable in its early staccs should have a waiting list, when delay means death. It should have a capacity of more than the de? mand, and that all who seek relief at the hands of the Commonwealth may have a chance for life, and may go ' out and preach the doctrine of preven? tion at their homes."

There are none when you use Van Camp's. Van Camp s Milk as it comes to you ?as thick as thick cream ?is utterly free from germs. Dilute it with water which has been boiled, add sugar and flavor, and freeze. Then you have an ice cream of exceeding rich? ness, absolutely pure. So in every sort of a milk dish?so in coffee and cereals?so in milk to drink. Van Camp's Milk means the maximum richness and utter sterility. Milkman's milk means neither, as you know. Nothing Artificial Van Camp's is simply rich milk as it comes from the cow, with two-thirds the water evapo? rated. Nothing is added, as to condensed milk. No sugar, no starch, no preservative. Nothing is subtracted save water. Our evaporating plants are built after Swiss models. There are seven, in seven states, e~ch built close to our dairies. They are conducted with hospital cleanliness. The fresh milk is put into a vacuum. Because of the vac? uum, a moderate heat evaporates the water without scalding the mill:. Thus the milk Fruit Milk Sherbet Take the juice from two oranges and three lemons. Add to it two-thirds cup o( sugar. Dilute one plot can of Van Camp's Milk with three pints water and turn into the freezer. Pour In the sugar and fruit juice, with hall can crated pine? apple. Freeze. Write tor our book ot 131 recipes. Including all sorts of ice cream. Van Camp Packing Co. Indianapolis, Ind. is reduced to the thickness of thick cream. Then it is pasteurized after the can is sealed. Its Amazing Richness Milk dishes, hot or cold, when made with Van Camp's, have amazing richness and flavor. Some people think we add something to give it. But we don't. Van Camp's Milk as it comes to you is 28 per cent solids, 8 per cent butter fat. It is rich be? cause it is whole, rich milk. Milkman's milk separates. The butter fat rises and the solids fall. When it gets to the cooking it is rarely more than a half-milk. Van Camp's is the whole milk?all of the butter fat, all of the solids. That is the only reason why milk dishes made of it arc so surprisingly good. Saves One-Half Half the cost of milkman's milk is the cost of the daily delivery. We save all that. And, by removing two-thirds of the water, we save in shipping bulk. As a result, Van Camp's Milk costs less than milkman's milk. The cost will figure about six cents per quart wbcu reduced to the usual milk's richness. Then there is no waste ?no milk left over. When you open a can it keeps till you use it up. By saving in cost and saving the waste, the use of Van Camp's cuts milk bills about in two. Think of that. Whole milk instead of a half milk. Pure milk instead of germ-laden. And a saving of half besides. But that isn't all. Think what it means to have milk and cream always on hand?a month's supply, if you wish it. No waiting for the milk? man, no shortage, no waste. Be Sure of Van Camp's Van Camp's Milk comes from pure-bred Hol? stein cows, kept in model dairies, constantly inspected. It is evaporated in modern aseptic plants. It is reduced to the minimum?to the thickness of thick cream. It is 28 per cent solids, 8 per cent buttct fat. It is the final result of seven years of perfect? ing, in which we employed the ablest Swiss and Dutch experts. It has cost us $100,000 to bring Van Camp's Milk up to its present standard. It is so generally preferred that we now milk 30,000 cows per day to keep up with demands. / Yet this premier milk costs no more than com* mon evaporated milks. The 16-oz. can?a full pint of Van Camp's?costs 10 cents. The 6-oz. can costs 5 cents. Use this milk once and you will always insist on it. You may as well have the best. Order from your grocer.
