A "cop is on trial in Cincinnati for

The crop of fools grow apace. An or
ganization, which does'nt give its name,
has petitioned the PostmasterGeneralto
exclude the Bible from the mails, be
cause it contains obscene and immoral
matter. Usually when the suggestion
is made to bar books from the mails for
that reason, the result is increased sales
and greater reading gf them. If that is
the case in this contention, good may
come out of evil intention.
When the ocean going tugGatun made
the initial trip through the Gatun chain
of locks in the Panama Canal last Fri

Peru that when the canal is finally
opened, beef from that country will sell

then the ditch will be worth all and
more that it has cost.

uty U. 8. Marshal Coleman, that he had
averaged about $7 profit on every gallon

Recovered From Junk Pile.
The value of "secondary metals"
exclusive of gold, silver, platinum, iron
and aluminum recovered in the United
States in 1912, reached the enormous
total of $77,395,843, compared with $52,-
585,390 in 1911, according to J. P. Dun-
lop, of tho U. S. geological survey, an
increase of $25,000,000, or nearly 50 per
"Secondary metals" are those recov
ered from scrap metal, sweepings, skim
mings, dross, etc., and are so called to
distinguish them from the metals deriv
ed from ore. which are termed "prima
ry metals."
Tbe values given for the secondary
metals are arbitrary and are based upon
tbe approximate average value of the
primary metals for the year. While
junk dealers and collectors frequently
pay low prices for small quantities of
scrap metals, competition results in good
prices for carefully assorted products in
large quantities.
After remelting or refining the metals
are sold at only slightly lower prices
than new metal. These secondary met
als displace an equivalent quantity of
primary metals and must be considered
in any estimate of stocks available for
consumption in any year.
