THE AGE OF CLAY.
Rapidly Supplanting Iron and Steel for Many Uses. In spite of the fact that the largest corporation in the world is devoted to the exploitation of iron and steel the people wno like to look ahead ate al ready prophesying the end of the iron age. It is pointed out that we can al ready compute the amount of iron ore still in sight, and the number of years which it will require to exhause these deposits. The question which arises is what is to be the substitute for Iron. The ex perts have an answer ready. We will return to the age of cla>. Iron, according to the late Professor Shaler, is first to go out of use for re taining vessels. After a while there will be no more iron buckets and bath tubs an 1 boilers. The retaining ves sels of the future, like those of our sav age forbears, will be made of clay. Al ready a new spirit is entering the pot tery of the world, and the ceramic in dustry is recovering the lost glories of its antiquity. Sheet iron will be come too expensive for roofs, and tiles will be more used. Even now they are regaining a vogue in American country houses. Iron for structural purposes will fol low the way of iron for retaining ves sels. For all its shell of brick and stone. New York la a steel city, a masked dre-am of the iron age, a metal skeleton, incased. Sometime its steel skyscrapers and its steel bridges will be curiosities. The houses and bridges of the future, many of them, will be built of remenf. Many of them are be ing built of cement. The cement house is a modified ver sion of the adobe dwelling of the In dians of the Southwest. It is the clay ago reasserting itself in a novel form. In this form indeed that age is al ready on the scene, shouldering out the iron age in a thousand plac's America produced only about a mil lion and a half barrels of cement in 1897. Last year the output was 26. 000,000 barrels. The supply Is practi cally Inexhaustable. It is claimed for the cement house that it can be erected in half the time of another house and at much less expense. Where Tuberculosis Breeds. Tuberculosis does not find its vic tims among the scrub cows that browse the roadside In summer and find shelter behind straw stacks In winter; nor among those who roam in wide, well-wntered pastures and are housed in barns through whose cracks the snowy and winds of winter s ft. It is among the herds whose winter quarters are basement dungeons where little air nnd less sunlight finds en trance, and those that are *va-mlv housed and highly fed on rations cal culated to force the secretion of milk to the utmost limit, that the severe losses occur, says Farming. It Is par ticularly a d's 'se of pampered ani mals. The hi hly bred animal 's not essentially more susceptible; the fanlt Is v.dth the man who should he "ahead of the cow” instead of ”h«*hlnd her.” There are the extremes of the in human stablrs of the ignorant, and the unnatural conditions maintnln' , d by the “S'donMflc breeder.” The latter < lass will be fh‘> flist .to r' allz' their mistake end rectify It. The former will need a deal of education and demon stration In the line of sanitation. Tramped Through Alaska. W liishop P. T.

SPELLING ORDER WILL BE WITHDRAWN BY PRESI DENT ROOSEVELT. NOT FAVORED BY CONGRESS House Resolves to Adhere to Old Style of Spelling.-—Change Would Make No End of Cost and Trouble. Washington. President Roosevelt will withdraw his simplified spelling order to the public printer and here after all documents from the Execu tive Departments will again he printed in the old-fashioned style. Representative Landis of the joint committee on spelling had a confer ence Thursday with the President, v/hen the President said that he did not wish to have spelling overshadow matters of great importance, and ex pressed a willingness to revoke his order for the new spelling in case tho House should go on record as op posed to the system. Mr. Landis introduced the following resolution in the House: ••Resolved, That it is the sense of he House of Representatives that hereafter that In presenting reports, locuments or other publications au hor'zcd oy laws, ordered by Congress or either branch thereof, or emanat ng from tho Executive Departments, their bureaus or branches, and inde pendent officers of the government, no government printing omce should observe and adhere to the standard of orthogrnphy prescribed in generally accepted dictionaries of the English language.” The measuro was passed without a dissenting voice, although Mr. Gillett f Massachusetts, who made a fight *or simplified spelling before the House committee on appropriations •nd has boon regarded as the cham ■lnn of the President's attitude, ex plained that he did not wish to give •he impression that he had changed his mind. Reformed spelling was put into ef feet by the President during the re ess of Congress and all public doc uments supplied to the Executive De oartmonts have been printed in the simplified way. These documents have been pouring in on Congress ever since, and the report on the Lan dis proposition s'ated that the com mittee had been governed by the fol lowing considerations: "The executive order, under which many public documents have already 'em printed, has been in force more than three months. Without taking is sue as to the relative merits of any farm of spelling It Is evident that, tin public s:ntlmmt has not been favor able to the innovation. “It is not believed that the atti tudo of the general public would be materially changed If the government in all its branches were to adopt the spelling prescribed in the executive order referred to, and only ron r .isioD and expense would result, wli limit any coinmensurate advantage even tf tin nrw form of spelling were deemed preferable. Moreover, Congress has nc rsstirance that the next admlnlstration would not revoke the present order “Much of the matter cmbr*ico«l 1c he publications of the government it preserved in electrotyped places rrpre s-nting large values to the govern mont in the saving of labor and othei expen8 r s. All or these plates would be rendered worthless in a moment by an order In a sucoodlng adipinistra Lion revoking the Executive order ol August 27th last. "In tho opinion of the commlttet any departure Trom the recognized standards of orthography cannot with safety, satisfaction or economy b* taken, until Congress and the execu five shall agree upon the adoption ol orthographic methods.” STATE FEES COLLECTED.

The boy and father together, with a guide, were hunting last Monday In the Book mountains north of Do Deque in the western part of the state, when they came upon the trail of a lion. The father let his son nnd the guide follow the dog. and they soon treed the Hon. The boy fired at the animal, striking her full In tiic breast.

Greeley.—Saturday payment for the November deliveries of beets was i. ade by the Greeley. Eaton and Wind sor sugar factories. The Greeley fac orv paid $210,000; Eaton, $215,- (00; Windsor, $179,000; total. $604.- „o. ihe monthly payroll for .orkmen at the three factories is .70,000, and the expenses $60,000, which, added to the forecoin':, makes a total of $739,000 put into clr ..tUv.on bj iiiu um.. t-*uu...d *****-‘*° t .ie last few days. The September de : fi-v of beets brourh* $185,000, and October $311,000, which, with the ...omniy payroll and expenses of the nree factories, has made the three dis ti lets richer by $1.5JJ,000. It is quite Vi'bable that ihe December delivery will equal that of November, and it will ,e Fcbiuary Ist b lore all beets are de livered. which will prolong the sugar campaign into R.arch. All beets are lug in northern Colorado and there ij i good prospect that practically all vlll be used by the factories without oss to the farmers from freezing or *.awing. The Beet Growers’ Association of he Greeley district met Saturday, with '.«) presfnt, to cfiiaider making con iacts for growing beets for sugar fac orics next season. They united to a an against siloing beets in the field t $5.50 a ton. as offered by the sugar ompany, as they claim the extra 50 rts docs not pay for the shrinkage n siloed beets, to say nothing or the xtra expense of labor. The* farineis •lUve that if the factories wish to ave the beets siloed the work should - .e done by the factories. The giowt*rs also object to the riause in the prest nt contract which • quirts a grower to wait until Octo r 20th to deliver uni' ss ordered ear cr, and desire the privilege of dtliv ring beets by October 15th.

The Evils of Constipation. are many; in fact almost every se rious illness lias its origin in consti pation, and some medicines, instead of preventing constipation, add to It.
