Mombasa, May 20.—(Very Special.) '
—Again has a runner come breathlessly
from Nairobi with a startling dispatch,
announcing that now Col. Roosevelt has
secured what is evidently the only sur- [
viving specimen of the true ancestor
of man, the Pithecanthropis Alalua. Tt
was captured by Col. Roosevelt himself.
The Pithecanthropis Alains was flush-'
ed in the high grass of the Wallolah
plateau. Just as one of bis party was
drawing a bead on it to shoot it as a
specie of dwarf anthropoid ape, it gave:
the high sign to Col. Roosevelt, who
quickly dismounted from his poneho
and snatched it up in time to save its
life. It is still in its infancy, age es-!
timated at about 11 years. No trace.

Combatting Opposition at
Annual Banquet Last
Night at Chicago,
Associated Press.
Chicago, 111., May 20.—The strength
of the temperance movement was con
ceded at the annual banquet of the
Society of Brewing Technology and
numerous suggestions were offered ou
how to combat the opposition.
“We must be on our guard or be
put out of business,” declared Chas.
J. Vopicka.
“For years the child at school has
been taught that aleohol is a poison
and that it is sinful to partake of beer.
That is a terrible mistake. None of our
predecessors have raised a finger in
protest. We must prove by experts that
the men who drinks moderately is the
healthier man. Then, we must teach the
young men to think for themselves and
not listen to hypocrites.
“We don't want special privileges—
just justice. We must see to it that the
inen elected to public office are honor
able, honest and liberal. Clean out the
indecent from the business and install
the respectable element, as they do in
Germany and England.’”
The session of the police court this'
morning was brief. The police report'
the night rather and little or
nothing to do beyond the patroiing of
their respective beats.

dently having fallen prey to lions, and
' it was living on cocoanut milk and co

j intention of taking It home alive to the
Smithsonian institution. The creature
[ is very intelligent, and has a simplified
language of its own which its captor is
rapidly learning, and very likely he
will soon be able to elicit from it some
thing of its history. The natives have
affectionately named it Bwana Gink, or
{ “Little Master.”
Bwana Gink, needless to state, has
become a general favorite in camp.

Thousands Have Kidney Diseaas and
Do Not Know It.
Mr. Guy C. Clarkson, of Tampa. Fla.,
who suffered from Kidney Disease for
some time, says he was much benefited
by Warner’s Safe Cure and Safe Pills.
On Dec. 5, 1908, Mr. Clarkson wrote:
“I suffered from kidney and liver
troubles and received no aid until I
took Warner's Safe Cure and the Safe
Pills. I was greatly benefited by these
and heartily recommend Warner’s Safe

Safe Cure is the only absolutely safe

At Meeting Tonight Plans Will
Be Made for More Sanitary
San Antonio.
That the members of the health de
partment propose to have the present ।
war on flies and mosquitoes properly
conducted is evidenced in the fact that
the health officials will personally visit:
sections of the eity, where most com ■
plaint is being made. Definite steps
towards furthering the eampaigu will |
be taken at a meeting of the board of ।
health this evening.
The health authorities are sincere in ,
their work and to be sure that the pres
ent .campaign against the fly and mos I
quito and for the maintenance of the
present sanitary condition of this city |
is properly carried on, Dr. Barnitz, pres-1
ident of the board, and the other mem-1
hers will make personal inspections in
many sections of San Antonio.
The members are determined that a
searching and thorough investigation of
the sanitary conditions pretaHing in
the city be made. Notwithstanding
they are confident the inspectors are
properly conducting the work, they de
sire to ascertain that the best methods
are being employed. The instantaneous
co-operation of the citizens is greatly
appreciated by the health department,
for they say that without it their ef
forts would avail but little and much

plished by resorting to the courts.

MAY 20. 1909.
The most wonderful
of all musical instruments
extend their installation from time to
time to light vessels and stations on
both coasts and upon the great lakes.
At present 46 of the light vessels are
thus equipped and the signals which
they send out are of undoubted value
to deep water navigation. Canada also
has taken up the equipment of her
coasts and England. Germany. Holland,
Franes, Sweden and Denmark are do
ing likewise.
The bells operate during fogs and at
night and the sound waves emitted by
the bell under water have been know*
to travel as far as 27 miles. These
sound waves are picked up by the re
ceiving microphones on board ships and
by the code signal of each station the
navigator is able to tell where he is
reference to the eradication of breed
ing places for flies and mosquitoes.
Such places as are likely to prove the
best places for the hatching of
pests will be given special attention and
the board will do its utmost towards
eliminating such conditions.
It is possible that at the session of
the members this evening a resolution
will be adopted directing that a peti
tion be introduced in the city council
requesting that additional inspectors bs
appointed. The present work is being
carried out by tbe regular force, which,
while proving quite satisfactory, is
claimed to be not perfect. The routine
work in keeping the city in a perfectly
sanitary condition cannot be abandoned
and for the special work during the hot
weather it is contended that extra help
must be obtained.
