Seeing no one but Hertz around, a six-foot rattlesnake occupying an exclusive den near Wlttenburg. Ariz., gave chase. Hertz dashed madly forward in the general direction of California. but the wriggler gained rapidly. Then everything turned dark before his eyes. But it was not fear gnr faintness. Just a prospector's hole. Hertz realized that he could not leap the chasm that yawned before him. Meanwhile the fangs of the reptile yawned in back of him. With rare presence of mind Hertz brought, himself to an abrupt halt:, took one step to the left and waited the end. The snake, however, was not gifted with Hertz's cleverness. It slid on and on until it plunged Into the abyss. Hertz, who is a business man and not n miner, reached the snake's body (for the snake died from its injuries), and had himself photographed j with it. But before he left he picked j up several specimens of the rock the j miners had discarded in their search for gold. The rock looked yellow. bu? recalling the famous saying that all is not gold that glitters, he had It assayed and learned that it was vanadium. Hertz returned to Arizona and bought the lirde that had saved his life. Today he dashed madly into Denver. He had received an offer of $100,000 for his property. f f\TAfn_J\Ta -rlorVita iinrficorvorl \ V?1V 4>1W ? 4V 4 ifjM Wl VHVi ?

In connection with the 5 ! weather reports received from Its 200 1 ; stations and from 4,500 other observation points, the bureau has established a large number of apodal stations for observing crop weather conditions In the corn, wheat, cot. ton, sugar, rice and cattle raising dlsi tricts. The object, of this service is 1 . to furnish the growers of each of those crops throughout the summer with information' that will enable them to handle the crops to best ad;! vantage. The corn and wheat region service covers for example, tho fifteen principal grain states. In which it 1 maintains one- region center, thirteen district centers, and 174 special sta- ' ilnnn from wfilrli Inl/rngme org rn. celved dally, anil reports disseminated. Dally bulletins showing the temperature and ralnrall at. those stn- 1 tlons are published at eighteen differ- . ent points and distributed to approximately 2,775 different people. Similar services dealing with cotton . weather conditions cover the eleven principal cotton states and consist of data gathered in thirteen centers through 175 special stations. This service was extended during the spring of JOIC to tho ne^Y cotton-y growing district in western ToXbb add other uncovered Golds. Tho sugar J and rice region service heretofore has supplied weather., iritpr'matlon to the rice growers,of Texas-and Louisiana and the sugar growers*. throughout the southern states. It Hs expected that a special rice service >111 be Inaugurated In Arkansas. i The special lobaco service is carried on in the'states of Connecticut' and Wisconsin through two centers ; and fourteen stations. Extension is | contemplated to give a more complete; special tobacco service in important tobacco districts in western Kentucky. The crop weather service is. particularly lmpoitant'-.to^alfalfa; growers In all the western states and special threo of four-day forcasts are issued in tlie same" way ;'in.-connecU6n with the harvesting, of alfalfa seed; which is dependent on weather-condt^ tions.
