Under the caption. "The Union Pa
cific Railroad and Louisiana Terri tory,” the new World’s Fair folder Is sued by the advertising department of the Union Pacific, which has attracted such general attention, recites these Interesting facts: “While the construction of the Union Pacific Railroad, its trials and triumphs, are a part of the history of the United States, the important part played by this railroad in the develop ment of the Louisiana Purchase can hardly be estimated. In the building up of this vast domain It has been one of the chief factors. One hundred years ago the popula tion of the region was estimated at 20.000. Up to the inception of the Union Pacific (In 1860) it had in creased to 3.233.529. In 1900 It num bered over 13.000.000 of Inhabitants. In this wonderful growth, with its stu pendous increase in all the many-sided phases of commercial, material and Intellectual prosperity, the Union Pa cific—as a glance at the map will show —has had a conspicuous share. It has opened vast regions of fertile country to settlers, and brought great areas of an unknown and unproduc tive wilderness into close communion with metropolitan centers and mar kets. Thriving cities, towns and ham lets. through its efTorts, have sprung up in every direction. It may be of interest to know that the total number of manufacturing plants, and the value of their outputs, combined with that of the national products as reported In the census of 1900. give an aggregate production for the Louisiana region of $3,500,000,000 annually, or 223 times the original pur chase price. The same census reports <1900) also show the total population to be 13.343,255, of which 8,303.096 in habitants are living in the states and territories reached by the Union Pa cific. On the 1900 census figures, it is estimated that the true wealth of the Ixniisiana purchase can bo stated at about $13,051,868,359. of which $9,360.- 621.387 Is represented In the states peached by this great railroad.” Most of the sex seem to think that the huppiest ago for a woman is mar riage. housekeeper should know that If they will buy Defiance Cold Water Starch for laundry use they will save not only time, because It never sticks to the iron, but because each package contains 16 oz.—one full pound—while all other Cold Water Starches are put up In %-pound pack ages, and the price is the same. 10 cents. Then again because Defiance Starch Is free from all injur.ous chem icals. If your grocer tries to sell you a 12-oz. package it is because he has a stock on hnnd which he wishes to dispose of before he puts in Defiance, lie knows that Defiance Starch has printed on every package in large let ters and figures "16 ozs.” Demand Defiance and save much time ana money and the annoyance of the Iron .■ticking. Defiance never sticks. Money isn't everything. Sometimes credit answers the same purpose. X am sure Plho'b Curo for Consumption saved my life three years ago.— Mrs. Thor.

Harden Metals by Air. The latest proposals for intensifying tiie oxidizing action of air on metals Is that of M. Harmet, and has for its object the treatment of cast iron, producing a refined iron or steel. Molten iron Is caused to flow through a fine channel surrounded by an an nular air-blast, which thus forms a turpere, driving the metal forward in a fine spray. This spray is collected and allowed to flow together again in a receiving chamber, from which the molten steel can be tapped. Hand-to-Hand Fight With a Tiger. On Monday last a villager plucklly attacked a tiger that was lying on the railway line near the Mosul station.

The unfor tunate man has since succumbed to his injuries at Arkonain.—From the Hindu. Gila Monsters Increase. Since the Indians have been thinned out the glia (heela) monster is over running the Southwestern territory.

Cuts Off English Novelists. The British Weekly. London, says: “Only a very few among the fore most of our novelists can have their stories published in serial form in America. Eight or ten years ago the English novelist of standing could count on receiving more than half his income from America, and now he can count on practically no returns at all.” Ambidextrous Society. A society for the promotion of am bidexterify has been formed in Lon don. That the left hands of the majority of adults have grown up in a state of very limited usefulness and of compartive weakness and awkward ness. while the motor centers of the brain supplying them have been left partially developed, must be admitted. Long-Lived Trio. There died in Paris recently Count Emile de Keratry. who could boast that his grandfather, born In 1699, was a page In the household of Louis XIV.

They prefer, when selling fat cattle, to pit their experience against that of the butcher, and to sell at sight instead of by weight. At present the total of all the calttle markets of England and Scotland In which the ”w«gh bridge” is scheduled as In use Is only twenty-one, of which six are In Scotr land and fifteen in England.

There is an old house at Buckhurst Hill, England, reputed to have once belonged to Dick Turpin, the notorious highwayman. It stands on the top of the hill, is one story high, and has windows on all sides. The reason given for Its peculiar construction Is that Dick Turpin could thus survey the flat country for miles around, and get timely warning of the approach of unwelcome visitors. Essence of Orange Leaves. A notable industry In Paraguay Is the preparation of essence of orango leaves. Some one hundred and fifty years ago the Jesuit priests, who then ruled that country, planted the orange forests. This essence is largely Im ported into France and the United States for use in soup and perfumery making. It is also used in Paraguay as a healing ointment and a hair tonic. Cording for Balloon Nets. In all. over three miles of cording are used in making a balloon net, which, as a whole, is strong enough to suspend a small locomotive, weigh ing a matter of twenty-five tons! Could the lifting power be imparted to the balloon, it would carry the rail way engine on a safe voyage through space. Value of Riches. Riches are valuable at all times and to all men. because they always pur chase pleasures such as men are ac customed to and desire; nor can any thing restrain or regulate the love of money but a sense of honor and vir tue. which, if not equal at all times, will naturally abound most In ages of. knowledge and refinement.—Hume.

In the report of the marine hospi tal service of Vera Cruz on yellow fever, the announcement Is made that th<- parasite causing yellow fever has at last been discovered. The remark able work done in Cuba by the late Major Reed and his colleagues con victed the mosquito of the spread of yellow fever and disproved the an cient theory regarding the danger of the so-called formities—clothes, bed ding. etc., with which yellow fever pa tients have been in contact. It was shown that contact with these was quite incapable of causing an attack of yellow fever, but that stegomyia fasclata, a species of mosquito, was almost certainly the sole agent in spreading the diseases, but the acutal cause of yellow fever, the germ itself, was not known. According to the Vera Cruz commis sion. their microbe is a form of pro tozoan, similar to the malaria para site, and not an ordinary bacterium. It goes through a cycle of changes an alogous to those of the malaria germ, and its presence In the mosquito mod ifies the latter’s life in away to favor Its spread of the disease. A miser is always more or less In sane; that is to say, he Is a money maniac. Cure for Backache.

For a long time Mrs. Nicolls suffered with very se vere pains in tho back and almost in stantly these pains left her. She has tried doctors and everything, but nothing had helped her till she used Dodd’s Kidney Pills. She says: “Dodd’s Kidney Pills did me so much good I can't tell. It was so won-, derful. My back hurt me all the time. I doctored and tried everything but did uot feel any better. I thought my life was short on earth, but now I feel like a new person. I used one box of Dodd's Kidney Pills and I do not feel the slightest ache or pain. I can turn and twist any way without feeling it and I feel so proud of It I cannot hardly express my gratitude to Dodd’s Kidney Pill® for what they have done for me.” A Denver lawyer calls his pretty typewriter girl his recording angel.
