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
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

suit from toxins, poisons and Impuri
ties which are generated in the bowels
and Hen absorbed Into the blood
through the very ductB which should
absdrb only nourishment to sustain
the body.
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 !
ad Salts is inexpensive, harmless and

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

Balkan Region
A Confusion
Of Religions
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
