All Bridge Bids Rejected.
AH bids for the erection of bridges over Big Sand and Tillman creek were rejected by the Board of Supervisors Monday. The board will probably be able to take defi nite action on the question at its next meeting, as the financial stat us will be better known after the equalization of assessments bas been completed. Interesting facts were brought out during the consideration of the bids. The cable bridge plans were the last word in cheapness for that type. The steel work would con sist ot two comparatively small cables, hanging roads and four steel towers eighteen Inches at top, thirty inches at base and one* eighth inch thick. Railings, gir ders, stringers k and flooring to be of wood. The concrete plans called for the best type of such mixture with an abundance of standard reinforcing iron. The lowest cable bid for the Big Sand bridge was $2400; concrete bridge $2750; diffeience only $3,50. For the Tillman bridge, cable $2400; cancrete $2525; difference only $125. The lasting quality and strength are overwhelmingly in favor of concrete. A Laxative Blood Cleanser. Don't put off taking a treatment of Po Do-Lax.

The local telephone exchange operates a little more than 230 'phones, and, according to tests just made, answers an average of 1854 calls each day. This does not include long distance calls nor calls where the liue wanted was busy and connection could not be made. The record shows that the greatest number of calls, 186, are made between the hours of 8 and g a m., and the next, 180, be tween 5 and 6 p. m. Very few calls are made between 10 p. m. and 5 a. m. There is no doubt that if a similar test was made in winter it wonld show a great many more calls per day than are made now. Does Sloan'* Liniment Help Rheuma *" tism?

NEW INDUSTRY IS POSSIBLE Specialists in U. S. Department of Ag riculture Declare Also That 105, 000 Gallons of Juice Now Thrown Away May Be Converted Into Jelly and Sirup. Washington, D. C.—Sixteen hundred tons of cherry pits, now a source of annoyance and expense to canneries, can be made to yield two valuable oils and also a meal for feeding cattle, ac cording to specialists of the United States department of agriculture. In addition, 105,000 gallons of cherry juice now wasted in seeding cherries can be turned into desirable jelly and sirup, or even into alcohol. " A saving of these valuable by-products fron\ cherry canning may make possible the domestic manufacture of substitutes for almond oil and bitter-almond oil, now imported, and at the same time establish a new industry in the cherry packing districts of the North Atlan tic, North Central and Western states.' - The specialists, however, have not yet carried their work to a point where they can say that the convert ing of this juice and the cherry pits would be a profitable side industry for the ordinary or smaller cannery. In cases where a number of canners are operating within a reasonable distance of one another, the specialists, how ever, believe that the waste products could be sent to a central co-operative or other plant at small cost and there utilized to advantage. Studies, how ever, are being carried on to deter mine whether means cannot be de vised for making these waste products profitable also when handled on a small scale. Some time ago there was similar In vestigation of the use of peach and apricot pits for making oils and meal, and a commercial enterprise has been established in California for dealing with these products. The de partment has published a bulletin on this subject and also one dealing with the utilization of raisin seed from the seeded raisin industry. It was found that many tons of raisin seed had considerable fruit adhering to them which could readily be turned into a very desirable raisin sirup for the use of confectioners and others. After this pulp had been used it was found that an oil useful in the arts could profitably be pressed from the seed, and experiments are under way to determine whether the crushed seed could not be used to advantage in feeding stock. The following description of these products, and methods which have been developed for making them, are taken from professional paper 350, "The Utilization of Cherry By-Prod hy Frank Rabak, chemical ; » acts, biologist, bureau of plant industry. Fixed Oil From Cherry Pit*. "The kernel of the pit, as long has been known, contains a considerable quantity of oil. cently conducted show that the oily constituents of the kernel can be con verted Into a fixed oil much like al mond oil, and a volatile oil practically identical with oil of bitter almonds. The residue after these oils are ex tracted shows on analysis Ingredients that may make It a practical cattle feed similar to linseed cake. "The fixed oil is the most important It has a Investigations re by-product of cherry pits, golden yellow color and a pleasant nutlike taste and odor. In character It is so closely related to imported al mond oil that it is believed to pos sess similar possibilities In the com mercial manufacture of drugs, oils and soap. If the pits of all domestic cherries, now thrown away at canneries, and the pits extracted from Imported cher ries, were processed in this way It Is estimated that they would yield 320, 000 pounds of fixed oil, worth in the neighborhood of twenty cents a pound. The best quality of this fixed oil is extracted from the kernels in hydraulic presses. The shells of the pits are first cracked in a mill and the uncrushed kernels separated out with sieves. The oil is then pressed out from the meats. In a laboratory ex periment the kernels yielded 21 per c ent ot fixed oil under a pressur e_of «4 2,750 pounds to the square inch. On a commercial scale, however, with presses equipped for heating the ker nels under pressure, It is believed that 30 per cent or more can be obtained. The oil also can be obtained by grind ing the pits and extracting by means of solvents. Volatile Oil Second Product. "The volatile oil, the second product, remains in the pressed cake after the fixed oil has been extracted by pres sure or by solvents, is then secured by chemical means and distillation. In the experiments the oil was obtained at the rate of jnearly one pound for every 100 pounds fof residue treated, it is estimated (that 6,000 pounds of this volatile oil (tould be obtamrd if all the cherry pits handled u earn ? es could b* The volatile oil The value of this by-product, used. based on the current prices for the very similar imported bitter-almond oil, would be in the neighborhood of $54,000. The press cake left after both fixed and volatile oils have been removed, Is believed to contain substances which may make it a desirable stock food. Its most important constitu ents, as shown by analysis, are fat, protein, including nitrogen compounds, and sugar and other carbohydrates. The protein amounts to 30 per cent and in this the cake compares favor ably with other stock foods. If cherry kernel meal proves in practice to be as good for feed as the laboratory analysis would indicate, the annual value of this product would be about $ 12 , 000 . a of In - In a to Much Juice Is Wasted. "The 105,000 gallons of cherry juict wasted each year in the canneries, tho experiments show, would, if collected and treated, produce 85,000 gallons of desirable jelly or a large quantity of table sirup, or could be made to fer ment and produce alcohol. In the ex periments a cherry jelly, bright red in color and with a fruity odor, was made by concentrating the cherry juice with cane sugar In a vacuum. A small amount of gelatin was then added and the mixture allowed to cool. Other processes In which the concentrated 'juice is heated with pectin or fruits rich in pectin, the, investigators believe might produce even better results. The juice also could be made into some 21,000 gallons of an agreeably flavored table sirup by neutralizing the acid in the filtered juice with milk of lime and concentrating it by evap-1 oration and then settling or filtering out the lime compounds. "The cherry juice, if fermented by the addition of yeast and then dis tilled, can be made to yield 36 per cent of absolute alcohol or about 6,000 gallons.'

Bloomington, Ind.—The Indiana uni versity authorities have established a censorship of clothes worn by the "co $dfu" _ — ■ — ' The censorship Is in charge of Miss Ruby C. E. Mason, dean of women, who is attending all dances and in specting the froeks and gowns, the evening gowns of the girls do not conform to regulations as to length and style, the wearers are sent back to their rooms for a change of attire. This has happened to several young women recently. The censorship is established because of the loyalty of the Indiana "co-eds" to the prevailing styles, especially in dancing frocks. The frocks have been cut so low from the chin and so high from the ground that they have been shocking to some, the university authorities say, all during the winter. it SUN SPOTS FALSE WEATHER OMENS New System of Long Range Fore casting Declared Fallacious by Government Bureau. EXPERTS SCOUT 'DISCOVERY' I f Theory Has Been Investigated by Scientists of international Reputa tion and All Agree That It Has No Value. j opinion of the weather bureau It be Washington.—The chief of the United States weather bureau stated recently, says tho Weekly News Let ter of tho United States department of j agriculture, that in the opinion of the bureau a new system of long range weather forecasting, which lias been widely discussed, was quite fallacious. The new system is said to be based on tho spottedness of the sun anc( rifts ' and shafts of solar radiation. In the I longs In the same class with other j methods of long range weather fore casting based on lunar, planetary, | 1 magnetic and astrological considéra | tions. None of these systems, it is g a id, has any scientific value, ! During the last few years the weath/ ; er jjm-eau has received full specifica tions concerning all the essential de tails of this particular system. The al ! j leged discovery is, therefore, fully ! known to the weather bureau, and has ! been carefully studied and examined j by its scientific fdr ff. Moreover, othei i scientists of international reputation now connected with the strongest In stitutions of the world engaged in as tronomical research and conducting investigations into solar and terres trial physics, have also passed upon jthese new theories. These authorities !are in accord that the deductions and conclusions drawn from the solar con ditions on which the new system is based are unwarranted. When the disk of the sun is minute ly examined with powerful telescopes, or when It Is photographed with the aid of the modern spectroheliograph, the surface presents a characteristic spotted appearance which undergoes j slight changes from day to day, ano greater changes with longer intervals of time, depending upon the well known rotation of the sun upon its axis I and tho periodic recurrence of the sun j spot maxima and minima. These and certain well-known related phenomena are now put forward as tho basis of a new science which will make possible forecasts of the weather far in ad vance. - That these features of solai activity, however, actually should con trol and determine the daily changes and sequence of weather conditions In any definite or direct and consequen tial manner is regarded by the govern ment scientists as quite impossible. Solar phenomena of the kind described do not have any direct influence upon the weather at any particular time and place, and cannot be made the basis of any forecasts whatsoever. The alleged discovery Is regarded as only one of a number of similar schemes which are continually being put forward. In some cases the advo cates of these schemes assert that they can forecast the wèather for weeks o% months in advance, and In others they state that they have found means of producing rain artificially, ol preventing hail, and in other ways oJ interfering with and controlling at mospheric phenomena, tensions meet with a certain credence, because there are-a number of persons who still cling to the ancient belief in the Influence of the moon on the growth and development of crops, and to the idea ^hat the weather condi tions depend upon planetary and astro logical combinations. In consequence the weather bureau has been called up on from time to time to caution the general public against putting faith in these til These fire For What Is It AU About?
