FLOOK WILL REMAIN IS EDICT OF MAYOR Medics Commend the Dairy men Who Have Submitted Their Herds to the Recent Tests by Tuberculine. The appointment of Charles E. Flook as dairy inspector by Mayor Zimmer man, to succeed Ir. Mark Stewart, and the probabilities for this work contin uing, were made matters of discussion at the meeting of the Wayne county Medical Society yesterday afternoon. The following resolution wa unani mously adopted: "Be it resolved by the Wayne Coun ty. Medical Society that we view with satisfaction the progress made in the protection of the public of Richmond from dangers of impure milk by the in spection of dairies and the tuberculine testing of dairy herds by a trained vet erinarian and urge the vigorous con tinuance. "Be it further resolved that we view with alarm the replacing of a trained veterinarian as dairy inspector by one entirely unfamiliar with veterinary sci ence and the methods of sanitary milk production, as likely to discredit and make Ineffective the work of this Im portant service." "Wayne County Medical Association." Statement by Mayor. Dr. Zimmerman was asked this aft ernoon .whether he had been informed of the action of the medical associa tion and what effect f. would have on his appointment. He replied "Mr. Flook was my appointment and he will continue to serve as dairy inspector. Mr. Flook will attend to the duties of the office as they should be attended to." He said that Just at the present time, he was not prepared to discuss the matter further. One of the physicians, in speaking of the meeting of the medical associa tion yesterday afternoon, said tnat so far as the members were able to learn. made by Mayor Zimmerman and not by the health commission. Expressions of commendation for the dairymen who had already submitted to their herds being tuberculine tested were made by the physicians. Six dairymen are included in this list. One of the physicians stated, "It is felt that the members of the society should recommend the use of milk, from only tuberculine tested herds, tor all purposes, and especially fo rthe use of infants and Invalids."

McCarren once told me of a funny Incident that happened In Home," said a Brooklyn lawyer. "Mc Carren said that on his first visit to Home, after he had seen the Coliseum and the Forum, he visited the Ara Coell church, on the left of the Capi tollne bill. ' lie climbed the grand stairway leading to the church, the finest open air stairway in the world. He pushed back the heavy leather cur tain, and, entering, be found a service III progress. So be put bis bat on the marble floor at his side and took a seat. "After ten minutes or so he decided ha would go and reached down for his bat. But a restraining hand was laid on bis, and be desisted. He knew, oi course, that some churches don't l!k people to leave in the midst of a serv ice. "Ten or fifteen minutes more passed. The service still continued. Senator McCarren got impatient and again reached for his hat But again the un seen band restrained him from the rear. "A little later, however, the senator quite lost patience. This was. he told himself, an important service, of course. Nevertheless he did not pro pose to miss his luncheon, and it would barm no one If he slipped out quietly. "So a third time he reached for bis bat. and the invisible hand a third time detained him. lie persevered, however. The silent hand pushed, and bis silent hand pushed against it. But Just as he was conquering in the strug gle a voice said in good American: "'Cheese it. boss; that's my bat you're taking.' "Exchange. Could Provo It. A few days ago an alderman was glancing over the register at one of tho local hotels to see if a friend of bis was registered there. Near him stood a man who was holding on to the desk, for dear life in a semisuccess ful attempt to maintain his balance. I s-s'pose you think I'm drunk Y' said the stranger, looking belligerently at the alderman. Ko; not in the least." replied the alderman, anxious to avoid the possi bility of a row. "Well, you'd know 1 was If I let go this desk," answered the man. New ark 8tar.

One church and parish house have been destroyed and the flames are gaining headway owing to lack of firefighting facilities. As far back as 1S44 the American public was led to believe that the At lantic had been crossed in a ballon. On May 8, in that year, the New York Sun published a detailed account of an aerial voyage from Liverpool to Charleston, which purported to have been accomplished by "the steering ballon Victoria in a period of seventy five hours from land to land." Five columns were devoted to the descrip tion of the journey and to a scientific account of the ballon, of which a wood cut was given, and an air of verisi militude was added by a list of eight passengers, one of the names mention ed being that of Harrison Ainsworth, who was then at the hlght of his fame. At the end of the eighteenth century balloons were all the rage. Then, as now, enthusiasts predicted a time near at hand when war would either be an awful matter of the annihilation of armies and forts by bombs from above, or would cease altogeather through the bolition of frontiers and the fusion of nations. on box. 25c Ills I M mi I J $o 5ES COUNTY IS AGAIN UNDER THE SNOW Flurry Which Started Last Night, Continued Dur ing the Day. SOME ROADS BLOCKADED BEGINNING AT AN EARLY HOUR TODAY THE CITY HAD GANGS OF MEN AT WORK MAKING TRAFFIC POSSIBLE. The second heavy fall of snow grac ed Richmond with its presence last night, and today this city and sur rounding country is blanketed in white to a depth of about four inches. The rain of Tuesday night followed by cold weather of Wednesday made an excellent icy foundation for the snow. "The beautiful" began to fall about S:30 o'clock last evening and continu ed intermittingly throughout the night. Richmond is certainly experiencing one of those old fashioned winters this season. When the mercury is not flirting with the zero mark the weather man is busily engaged in puncturing holes in the snow clouds and thus it promises to continue. A biting north wind followed the snow storm of last night, and today if far from being comfortable. The lowest point reached by the liquid last night was 12 degrees above zero, but in view of the cold wind, which, how ever, had no great effect on the ther mometer, it seemed much colder. Employment for Many. But its an ill wiad that blows no good. The snow was hailed with joy by those who were in search of em ployment. Little difficulty as ex perienced in geting work today shovel ing snow. The city employed a large force of men all through the day clear ing the streets and opening the way for traffic. The interurban schedule received a bad jolt and the majority of the Pennsylvania and C, C. & L. trains were late also. The snow is of the light and fluffy variety and is easily blown into drifts of a depth of several feet. Farmers report that the snow drifted on the country roads to a great depth in numerous places and that it was almost impossible to break through portions of the road. The merry jingle of sleigh bells is again heard after an absence of only a few days and coasting is the chief delight among the small boys once more. HEAR FROM STUBBS Governor of Kansas Writes That He Will Try to Visit the City. HIS PLANS NOT DEFINITE E. M. Haas, chairman of the com mittee of the Young Men's Christian Association to make arrangements for the annual banquet, has received a letter from Gov. W. Ross Stubbs, of Kansas, in which he states that he will endeavor to attend the banquet J and deliver the principal address. How-' ever, he is not positve as to whether j he can make the trip and advises th.ej committee to make arrangements with- out him. The committee met this af- rtenoon at 4 o'clock, to determine on the policy to pursue. It is probable, that since the committee men, hav waited a month on Gov. Stubbs. that they will hold the banquet off until he can be present. RUSSIA A SUBJECT In an interesting address delivered at the Masonic temple last evening, be fore the Webb and Richmond lodges of Masons. Captain S. Alberti, formerly of the Russian army spoke of the se cret work of the lodge in the foreign countries. Capt. Alberti will deliver another address at the Masonic tem ple this evening, which will be open to the public He will recount his thrill ing escapes from Siberia and the talk will doubtless be decidedly interesting. 0LD PLUM FOR RICf District Congressional Con vention Will Probably Meet Here. HAAS TO INDIANAPOLIS E. M. Iiaas, chairman of the Sixth District Republican Central committee will attend the meeting at the Clay pool hotel, Indianapolis, tomorrow aft ernoon, called by State Chairman James Goodrich, to determine upon the dates for the holding of the dis trict and county republican organiza tion meetings. One of the important matters to be considered at this meeting, so far as Sixth District is concerned, will be the selection of the meeting place of the district delegates for tho pur pose of electing a district chairmi. Rushville, because of its central loca tion in the district, is regarded by many as the city where the first of the district conventions will be held. But Richmond will probably receive the plum of the lot the district conven tion, to be held later, at which the con gressional representatives will be se lected. Peculiar Lakes. On the Mangishlak peninsula, in the Caspian sea. there are five small lakes. One of them is covered with salt crys tals strong enough to allow a man and beast to cross the lake on foot. An other Is as round as any circle and a lovely rose color. Its banks of salt crystal form a setting, white as the driven snow, to the water, which not only shows all the colors from violet to rosy red. but from which rises a perfume as of violets. Both perfume and color are the result of the presence of seaweeds, the violet and the pink. Sex Proportion. Statisticians agree that the popula tion of the world averages 109 women to every 100 men.

The house was offered for sale immediately after Mr. Whitney's death but his son at that time could not as sume the $2,500,000 asked for it. The place was once esteemed to be the most beautiful in America. Stanford White selected many of the magnifi cent art objects.

McNALLY GASPED HARD THEN HE POLITELY SPOKE THROUGH THE 'PHONE, STAT ING THAT OFFICERS WERE BUSY CUTTING THE GRASS NOW The telephone bell rang long and furiously at police headquarters this morning. "Hello"' answered the voice of Sergeant McXally who was at the desk. No reply. Again the vocal or gan of the genial sergeant made a noise like the opening word of con versation over the telephone, but still silence reigned supreme. Bang went up the receiver while the word was being repeated backwards under the officer's breath. Once more the tele phone rang continuously for about a minute. Third Time a Charm. McXally was Johnny-on-the-spot this time and he fairly shouted "Hello" into the mouth of the transmitter. "Hello" came back a peeved feminine voice over the wire. "Is this police headquarters? What's the matter with you "cops up there, I've been 'trying to get you all morning. Why say, send a cop down to street right away will you? I want him to clean my chimney flue, its terribly dirty." "Is that all, lady," answered the sergeant. "I'm sorry I can't sent a cop down to do the work, but don't breath it to a soul, they're all en gaged at present in cutting the grass on the court house lawn and it would be impossible. "And with this part ing salute two receivers were hung up simultaneously. City Statistics Marriage Licenses. Marion Farr, 23, Hagerstown, and Hattie A. Campbell, 23, Cartersville, 111.
