World's Supply of Absinthe May Da
Shut Off by Switzer
land. Pea green elephants, pink monkeys

Swiss government. ,-,
Nmrly ihe entire, ipiantlty of ab
slntho Imported into the. United
States In distilled in tho canton of
Nouchatol In Switzerland. Virtually
all of It that Is imported rocs to tho
thrco cities of New York, Now Or
leans and San Francisco.
Because of the great evil resulting
from the habitual uso of polton, thoro
Is a movement on .foot in Switzer
land to prohibit tho production of
abslntho and oven to forbid its salo
within tho republic.
The manufacture or distillation of
absinthe Is a government monopoly
In Switzerland. Tho estimated rovo
nue to tho government Is about 1,
000,000 a year. This revenue is dis
tributed by tho government among
tho various cantons or provinces
with tho proviso that 10 per cent of
It must be expended in promoting the
rauso of temperance.
Now prohibition Is in tho ascend
ancy In Switzerland and Is Booking
a constitutional amendment to forbl3
the distillation and sale of abslntho
and to enforce absolute prohibition
through tho entlro republic.
Tho movement, according to Consul
Qlfford at liasll, has given a groat
Impetus because of the fact of an
nlulntho-crnzed father In the canton
of Vnud, In killing his wife and chil

Educational Experiment Which Has1
Solved Most Vexing Modern
Tho superintendent of the schools
of Batavla, N. V., has apparently
solved one of tho most vexing ques
tions which havo to do with modorn
education. It is a realization of the
Pestalozxlan theory that each pupil
liai a right to be educated personally
for what ho can best achlove. For
ninny years It has been charged
against the public school system that
tho standards were set for tho clever
pupils to the detriment of tho back
ward and dull ones. If tho "Batavla
experiment." as It Is called, proves
after long trial to do what It is hoped
it will then pi'ary education will
bo Infinitely bettered.
Mr. Kennedy, tho originator of the
schomo, proposed to tho governlhg
board, of Batavla to procuro the serv
ices of an extra teacher for each
room whoso duty it should bo r to
listen to recitations, but Jo help '
encourage nny pupils who were fah
Ing behind the class. It was to bo
entirely a work of sympathy and de
manded "great tact and discernment.
Tho, plan was tried In a single room
and tho result was so marked In both
pupils and teachers that tho experi
ment has spread rapidly and Is bolng
Introduced in all tho better schools
in tho United xStatos.
Its valuo can not bo overestimated.
Tho teachers are stimulated to do less
nagging, whllo the pupils themselves
aro relieved from going beyond their
ability and strength. And the effect
o"n health of tho children was also
marked. No books were taken home
for night study and six times the
number of pupils remained to gradu
ato from tho high school.
The Beverages Which Stimulate
the Brain Are Non-Alcoholic.
"Tea nnd coffee nro d miks drugs

Has Formed Vast Bed of Solid Salts
Through Which Stream
Undoubtedly one of tho most reumrk
nb o springs in the world hns recently
been dlscoveicd In New Mexico. It ia
literally a Bprlng, says the Knglneerlng"
und Mining Journal, saturated with
sodium sulphate Distilled water
weighs 8.33 pounds to the gallon. The
water of thl.. .., ring weighs 10.CC pounds
per gallon, i eaporat!on yields 3.13
pounds of .1,, tuiid matter, of which S3
per cent. Is sulphate of soda, crystalliz
ing out chemically pure.
1 he sulphate of soda crystal contnlns
57 per cent, water. At 110 degrees Y. it
melts In its own water of crystalliza
tion, and tho temperature of tho spring
beiug slightly In exeees of 110 decrees
F., the saturated liquid upon ovciflow
lng and cooling immediately forms a
crystalline mass like lie.
The natural inquiry nrlsos ns to the
dopoKlt or accumulation of ages from
this Fprlng; for, unless it discharged
Into stream of fresh water, the deposit
would be vast In extent. No more fit
ting locution could be Imagined, for It
is in the lowest portion of a vast sink
or basin, scores of miles In extent.
The deposit, therefore, has formed n
vaBt bod, miles In extent, of solid sodium
salts, through which this spring, by rea
son of Its heat, maintains Its channel
and continues to augment tho deposit.
Inasmuch as tho soda crystal effloresces,
or gives up Its water by evaporation, tho
elements servo to smooth nnd level the
surfuco; so thnt tho lake, though dry, Is
whlto as Rnow nnd bears some resom
blanres to n northern lake In the em
brnre of winter.
Isle of Wight Man Evinces an Un
accountable Desire to Stay
in An Asylum
A man has Just been discharged
from tho Isle of Wight asylum undor
oxtrnorJInnry circumstances, having
twlco feigned madness with such suc
cess that ho was committed to that
Institution as n dangerous lunatic.
Ten years ago ho startod on his
career as a professional "lunatic,"
and he was tho first inmate of tho
Isle of Wight nny'um. At'that tlmo
he was soon uncharged, as tho
asylum authorities wero satlsflod ho
was shamming.
About n month ago he arrived nt
Cowos from Southampton, where,
seemingly under tho influence of
drink, he was chasing children and
women In the streets nnd acting In
an extraordinary manner Witen
takon to tho police nation ho spoke
of military relations :.nd m.illons of
money, but ns the .ocat jloc'or sus
pected he was shamru.ug ho directed
his removal to the workhouse.
There ho Indulged In window
smashing, nnd having dono consldor
nblo datnago ho was romovod to tho
asylum as a dangerous lunatic. Tho
modlcal superintendent at ouco rcc
ognlzod him nnd turned him out. Tho
mysterious Individual refused to ro
turn to tho workhouso and has not
slnco troubled the authorities.
