I OMPANY WILL SOON COMPLETE ROAD THROUGH THE FIRST WARD. HAS TAKEN THE MATTER UP WITH GOVERNMENT ENGI NEER AT PITTSBURGH. LOCAL CHAMBER OF COMMERCE IS A8KED TO MAKE CERTAIN . RECOMMENDATIONS. That the Baltimore and Ohio Rail road Company is now ready and will in tho near future begin the building of its long delayed Palatine branch is the welcome news recently receiv ed by the Fairmont Chamber ot Com merce. In order to facilitate the pre liminary arrangements necessary bo fore the construction work is Btarted, the directors of the local Chamber of Commerce held a meeting this aft ernoon at the quarters in the Wat son building to discuss what action should be taken in regard to the river encroachment, near the Monongahela ijver bridge, which is called for in the survey and blue prints of the pro posed extension. The new railroad line will run right along the river bank underneath the river bridge. In order to accomplish this it is necessary to make a solid embankment fill, the bottom ot the slopes of which will encroach on the present "pool full" water line in two places and before the railroad com pany can even start this work, per mission must be obtained from the United States Engineer at Pittsburgh who has control of the Monongahela river. The consent of the local Chamber of Commerce or rather Its recommend ation is required by the government engineer before any action will be taken in the Pittsburgh ofTice. It was in order to obtain this favorable rec ommendation that the railroad com pany, through Paul Didier, its prin cipal assistant engineer, wrote a let ter to the secretary of the local cham ber asking that the matter be taken ndfesc'".

It Is the function of the kidneys to filter Impurities from the blood and cast them out in the form of urine, hut in many instances the bowels create more toxins and Impurities than the kidneys can eliminate, then the blood uses the skin pores as the next best means of getting rid of these impuri ties which often break out all over the skin in the form of pimples. The surest way to clear the skin of these erutlons, says a noted authority, is to get from any pharmacy about four ounces of Jad Salts and talce a tablespoonful in a glass of hot water each morning before breakfast for one week. This will prevent the formation j of toxins In the bowels. It also stlmu-j lates the kidneys to normal activity,; thsu coaxing them to filter the blood I of impurities and clearing the skin of ! pimples. ad Salts is inexpensive, harmless and Is made from the acid of grapes and ? lemon Juice, combined with lithia. Here : you have a pleasant, effervescent drlnlt which usually makes pimples disap pear; cleanses the blood and is excel-! lent for the kidneys as well. up immediately through the regulnr channels so that the assent of the government could be obtained for the I project. It was for this purpose that the special meeting of the directors was called. While the extension of the Palatine branch has been in contemplation for many years and the actual work has been rumored to start several times still the agents of the railroad com pany have never been as active in the past as in the last few months. Sur veying corps were busy on the pro posed route during the fall months, or as long as good weather lasted an.l it was during the last term of Cir cuit Court that some of the condem nation suits for right of way were tried. While no definite time has been settled on for the starting of the work the railroad company has let It be known that there will he as lit tle delay as possible and It is like ly that the first dirt will be moved in tho spring of the coming year. Balkan Region A Confusion Of Religions ?Tis THE MEETING PLACE OF THE ORIENT AND THE OCCIDENT. IT IS A LAND OF LABEL WHERE TRAINED IMGRUSTS NEED AN INTERPRETER. WASHINGTON. D. C., Uec. IS ? Some of the leading characteristics of the Balkan region, that part of the j world which a confusion of races, lan-1 guages, customs, nations, religions, and traditions has caused to be the centuries-long theatre of seething, Incessant religious and racial strug gles are described In a statement giv-1 eu to the press today by the National I Geographic Society, It says: "Many peoples of many kinds meet! on the fringe between the East and the West, the Baykan peninsula, and each of these peoples clings tenacious ly to Its language. Its traditions, Its religion, and to the manners anil ways of its kind. Several families of the Slavonic people, each with Its own tongue and patriotism, are thero. The Turks, the Greeks, and a sprink ling of Germans, together with many fragramentary types of peoples, from West and East, survivals of nations and tribes of yesterday's history, add to the kaloidascoplc bewilderment. The Balkan lands are a Babel through which no ordinary 'master of tongues' may hope to go without the aid of an occasional interpreter and much use nC sign language. "In the hearts of most of these peoples, no matter how small their land or how lltttle the world may know of them, there Is kept alive a fiery consciousness of their nation ality. The Montenegrin Is as devot ed a native of his small bowl of a country among the mountains as Is the citizen of our own United States, t.ho difference being, where any, tliat the Montenegrin r emlnds hlmsolfr much more often of hia nationality and Its advantages than does the av erage Aemrican. With the sharp racial, tribual and lingual dlvis'ons pf the Balkan peoples, religious divis ions exert a far more powerful dis tinctive Influence there, than is th? case with us. Greek Orthodox, Ro man Catholic, various Protestant con' fesslons, and the Mohammedan faith hRve Berved to segregate these peo ple from one another. "All the energy, destruction and clamor which the friction between hs many contrary types of people and ideals has occasioned, has retarded the development of the Balkans pe ninsula so that It Is some generations behind the achlvements of the West; nnd the traveler in the byways of thiB country has had to put up with those some inconveniences which he would encounter In developed Asia. The roads In the Balkans are bad, In most cases mere cattle and footpaths. T he villages are squalid, Ill-kept, with out improvements, without comforts, without conveniences. The meanB of transportation 'are uncertain; the mules are undependable, the railway trains are capricious, boats move ac cording, to the tempers of'thelr cap tainsand the moods of,their engineers horse and cart a risky adventure, while the treacherous roads mako Furthermore the law and order of muphJot^the^B^nilandSiils at best a matter ofijconsidokrable JyJs ' MM FalrwontWeW reduced everything so' as to give ?ll the folks Xmn gifts without worry to the pocketbook.
