W W Around The World By the "OFFICE BCM"' A big family can keep a man out of most other temptations. I guess that's the reason the Hindu Is so good. In India there is a tree oalled the "Peepul." It is said that when one is standing in Its shadow they oan not tell a lie, but I found several that would not stand the test. The Hindu merchant brings his wares to one's very door. The hotels are nearly all one-story affairs, and no sooner is ons shown to their apartments than a lot of Jeweiry, laces, shawls, brass and ivory, as well as all sorts of curios, are spread out on the stone floor In front of one's door, and many times they are shaded by a "Peepul" tree. That's how I discovered that the tree made no difference In the string of talk the Hindus harded out about their wares. The one-price sys tem Is entirely unknown to them They do not walk milea and oarry those great bundles on their heads because they need the exercise. But I got on with them all right. I told them about America and the way - business was done over here, ex plained how we only carried the best goods made and how we guaranteed - ham and sold them on awfully small margins of profit.

The collision occurred between local train No. It, northbound, and limited section two of No. 73, south bound. According to the order, No. 14 was running wild after leaving Watt, 111., five-eighths of a mile north of Staun ton.

The impact drove both cars down the track nearly 100 feet, and left them In a mass or wreckage which the dead and in jured passengers were pinioned, In the northbound oar not one es caped uninjured, md few in the other rar.

CHICAGO CHARGES 77 CARRIERS OF CONSPIRACY Board of Trade Accuses Parallel Lines of Rate Combine CHICAGO. Oct. 6.—Charges that tho eastern railroads have conspired through the ownership and control of pnrnliol lake transportation lines to deprive Chicago of its geographical advantage of location in their con struction of rates upon wheat and flour to the Atlantic seasoard, are preferred in a petition addressed to the inter state commerce commission by the Chicago board of trade. Seventy-seven carriers are named as defendants in the formal complaint of the board to the commission, which particularly asks a reduction in tho rates on "ex-lake" grain east of Buf falo. Not only are the rates declared un reasonably high In themselves, but it Is charged the railroads are applying a much higher rate than is just for the haul to Buffalo when the initial stage of the Journey is by water than the proportion of the through all-rail rate charged for the same traffic. This, it Is declared, tends to give the railroads a monopoly of the traffic by equalizing the rail and water rate from Chicago to Buffalo and preventing a reduction of the water rates. EXPERTS SAY SCOURGE AMONG HOGS WILL CEASE 'Bureau of Animal Industry Finds Efficacious Remedy for Chol era in Animals WASHINGTON, Oct. s.—Cholera, the great scourge that has so long sorved to render the raising of hogs a hazardous undertaking, in the opinion of experts of the agricultural depart ment, bas been conquered. The bureau of animal Industry of that department has been getting cumulative evidence for some time to show how efficacious as a preventive of the disease is a new serum which the bureau has been testing. As the crowning triumph of the serum, the bureau describes an ex periment at the union stock yards at South Omaha, Neb., in co-operation with the Union Stocks Yards company of Omaha. EXPERIMENTS WITH TIOS "The stock yards company," says the bureau, "purchased thirty pigs, weigh ing from forty to sixty pounds each, from a farm which had been free from hog cholera for several years. These pigs were brought to the stock yards and on July 23, 1910, lour of them were injected with blood from hogs sick from hog cholera. "The inocculated pigs were placed in a pen by themselves and within five days they had become sick, at which time eighteen of the remaining pigs were each given one dose of the serum, while the other eight pigs were not treated in any way. The eighteen serum treated pigs and the eight un treated pigs were then placed in the same pen with the four pigs which had been made sick by inocculation. STATE FUNDS ABE DESIRED "The four pigs which were first given hog cholera all died and the eight un treated pigs all contracted the disease from them. The eighteen pigs which were given serum and which were con fined in the same pen with the four original sick pigs and with the sick un treated pigs were made perfectly well and were finally turned over to the officials of the stock yards company upon the completion of the experiment on September 17, 1910." The department of agriculture does not distribute this serum to farmers, but is endeavoring to bring the value of this method to the attention of the stock raisers In order that they may arrange to secure state funds for the manufacture and distribution of tho serum.
