Parasite Spreads Disease.
A peculiar disease, that Is still con
fined chiefly to certain river valleys of
Japan, but suggests possibilities of
breaking loose as a widespread epi
demic, has been a subject of recent in
vestigation. It is known as "tsut
sugamushi," and is transmitted by the
"akamushi," an insect parasite of cer
tain field mice. It is a fever striking
ly similarto'typhus and Rocky mount
ain spotted fevers. The investigators
have learned that its chief occurrence
Is in the months of June to October,
which is the time of development of
the insect carriers, and the season
when the peasant victims of the dis
ease are brought into contact with
the mice. The mortality, though very
variable, sometimes exceeds 50 per
cent Under existing conditions, bites
by the insects cannot be wholly
avoided, and cutting out the bitten
part does not prevent the spread of
the virus, while such -remedies as
iodine, mercury, arsenic, quinine and
dyes have proven ineffective The
only hope of stamping out the disease
seems to rest in the extermination of
the field mice.

LOCATED THE MISSING SHOES
Passenger Who Had on Wrong Pair
Admitted Thinking That They
Felt "Pretty Tight."
Mr. D. of North Pennsylvania street
tells of a near tragrty, or some
thing akin to it, which occurred a
few days ago on a morning train
coming in from Chicago, relates the
He had occupied an upper berth,
and when he arose found that his
shoes had disappeared. A pair not
his own were where his should have
been, but they evidently, belonged to
the occupant of the lower berth.
The porter was called, but his most
diligent search failed to locate the
missing shoes. The" train was rapid
ly speeding toward Indianapolis, and
with visions of arriving stocking
footed, Mr. D. was in a most unenvi
able state of mind.
About that time a portly little'man
sauntered down the aisle, stopped
&nd-beg|phf to assemble his possessions
perTparatpry tii detraining. "What's
the excftement?" he inquired, becom
ing interested in the search.
"Why, this man's lost his shoes,"
said the anxious) porter. "You don't
suppose you-all might 'a' mistook
them for yours, do you?"
Then the portly party took a look
at his feet and discovered that he
"Well,*' saW he, considerably cha
grined, "I thought that the pesky
things felt pretty tight"
And then there occurred a hasty ex
change of shoes Just the train
pulled into the station.
MAKE SKILLFUL AUTO DRIVERS
African Natives Conduct Vehicles
Along Jungle Track* After Short
Term of Apprenticeship.
It Is natural that since automobiles
have found their way Into every part
of the world, the drivers would vary
in appearance, and in attire or lack df
attire, according to the customs of the
countries in which the motor car is
called to do service. If you were to
walk along the road leading from the
west coast of equatorial Africa several
hundred miles into the Interior for
instance, you might see a motor track,
plowing through the jungle, and in
the chauffeur's- seat, driving with pe
culiar and cheerful abandon, would be
a west African natlver And from the
appearance of his driver's uniform, it
would be evident that the high cost
of clothing would bother him not one
whit Thecie ''natives become full
fledged chauffeurs within three-or four
weeks from the time they see ttteir
first motor vehicle. The trucks, of
which there are about 200, maintain
regular schedules as feeders to a large
steamship line plying between west
African ports and Europe and Amer
ica. They are loaded with men and
supplies on the inland trips, and with
cocoa products, palm oil, hides, and
rubber bound for the coast.
Clemeneeau and Heaven.
The latest Clemeneeau anecdote that
Is going the rounds of the boulevards
Is to the effect Oat the premier was
annoyed because a tree in the neigh
boring garden overshadowed his. The
tree was the property of some Jesuit
fathers, on whom/ M. Clemeneeau
called, politely explaining that his at
titude to the church was unchanged,
but he would regard it as a personal
favor if the Jesuit fathers would cut
down the tree, "because It prevents ma
from seeing the heavens." The Jesuit
father who received him was very
courteous and was much flattered by
the premier's call. He promised that
the offending tree should be speedily
removed, but he added, with the suave
smile of the ecclesiastic: "I am afraid,
M. Ie Premier, that, Just the same,
you will not see heaven.'V-London
