LITTLE PLEASURE IN TRAVEL
German Trains Creep Along In Dark

Special precautions against air
rnlds are now being taken on the Ger

cially liable to uerlui bombardments
by the allies. Railway Age states.
The Pulntlnute railways, in particular,
are adopting precautionary measures,
und u writer in the Lokal Anzeiger who
recently truveled on this system de
scribes the darkening methods adopt
ed at night.
"For hours," he writes, "the train
traveled as though In u dark cave,
without lights, without conductors,
without any station names being called
out when the train stopped. When
every lamp is extinguished throughout
the countryside, and the towns und vil
lages, ns though constrained by agony,

"Everywhere placards indicating 'how

Its Journey; in u river alongside the
line one still sees the locomotive which,
togther with its train, plunged Into the

GOLD MINING HIT BY WAR
Many Properties That Were Profitable
Have Been Forced to Close Down
Gold is one of the wur victims. The
was has forced down, in market value,
measured by human labor, many kinds
of property and most of the staple
commodities, until some gold mines
which yielded a fair profit before the
war have become temporarily useless
to their owners. It costs so much to
operate them that they cannot be
worked without u loss.
There has been change in the value
of gold itself, iu the money of greut na
tions which huve maintained their
monetary systems on the specie busis,
while almost everything else has gone
up. The result is that any given num
ber of ounces of gold mined will buy
much less material ust'd In mining,
I such as explosives, drills, pumps and
other machinery, und will pay for few
er days' work. This change is still
going on and the position of the gold
mining companies grows less and less
secure aud sound.
Effect of Poison Gases on Troops.
Certain gases have for their more
immediate object, the irritation of the
eyes (the lachrymatory gases, one part
in a million of uir being effective), tem
porarily blinding the victim; others
are designed for the lrritutlon of the
nose (the "sneeze-gases"), making it
almost Impossible for the tighter to
overcome the tendency to throw off
his mask; and others again, for the
production of burns when in contact
with the flesh, which are of a most
distressing character, and, even if
they do not cause death, incapacitate
the victim for service for a period of
months. The last-named gases are
likewise toxic and lachrymatory to a
high degree. The so-called "mustard
gas," a compound somewhat similar
in character to mustard oil, but fnr
more of an irritant, has proved par
ticularly destructive, and doubtless ac
counts for many of the casualties in
recent attacks.—Henry P. Talbot, In
Benefits of War.
That the benefits of war overshadow
its damages is the Arm conviction of
