HAS A BIRTHDAY Cannot Remember Whether It Is the $ixty*Eigth or Sixty=Ninth -Special to Evening Teller. NEW YORK, July 8.—John D. Rock efeller, whose whereabouts recently has been a cause for speculation Among process servers and others who would like to meet him, has a birthday Anniversary today. It seems to be About as difficult to fix the oil mag nate's exact age as it usually is to light upon hts exact whereabouts. Some authorities have it that Mr. ^Rockefeller was born July 8, 1838, while others declare that it was In 3.829 that he first saw the light of day -And began to dream of oil combines c-a&d millions. However this may be, it is certain that Mr. Rockefeller finds himself on his present birthday, whether it be his sixty-eighth or sixty-ninth, the posses sor of more money than any oeher known individual in this or any other country. And it is a pretty safe guess that the more birthdays he has the more money he will possess, despite the fact that he scatters quite a few millions yearly among American col leges and charities. Three or four years ago, when Mr. ■Rockefeller did not have very much more than half a billion dollars to his 'name, his income was two dollars and a few cents every second of the day. The average man earning $2 a day can apreciate the difference there Is be tween $2 a day for six days a week And $2 a second for seven days a week. It is Impossible for the human mind to comprehend the vastness of Mr. Rockefeller's wealth, should the oil magnate live to reach his 100th birth day and should his fortune continue ' to increase at the present rate. Why He Liked Ado. A young man was sitting in a barber -shop looking at a magazine when an ■old farmer, with little knowledge or Appreciation of literary people, stepped «ip behind his chair and looked over his shoulder. "Who's them?'' he Inquired, pointing vto a group of portraits. 1'Well-known authors and play -wrlghts," was the reply. "Humph!" ejaculated the farmer, contemptuously. "Jist writin' fellers, oh?" Then he caught sight of George Ade's long, solemn face, and his eye I lighted up. "That's the one 1 like," he - said with decision, putting his finger ► on Mr. Ade's mournful countenance. "Oh, yes, nearly every one lildes 'George Ade," agreed the young man. "His humorous writings are—" "Don't know nothin' 'bout his writ- Jn*. but I like his face." -"Why, so?"—curiously. " 'Cause he's the only feller that looks like he was sorry for what he'd j ■done." Osage Land Drawing. TULSA, I. T.. July 8.—The Osage j "land drawing, which was to have tak •en place in April, but which was held up pending an Invest'gatlon of the j tribal rolls, was commenced today.

No preference in the selection of lands will be given because of im provements, hut members of the tr.be will be given an opportunity to ex change selections under the super vision of the commissioner. YANKEES WOULD DESERT SHIPS TOKIO, July 8.—The •morning prints an interview with Ad miral Sakamoto in which the admiral Is quoted as follows: "Should hostilities broak) out be tween Japan and America, the result woulo be indecisive owing to want of proper bases of operation. Such bases as exist are too distant for practical purposes. Even the nearest bases, namely, Pescadores, Cavite and Ma nila, are at a distance of 600 miles Ckom one another. Even if the Wash ington government should decide on "war, it is doubtful if the Americans serving in the navy are sufficiently pa t triotlc to fight. "American naval officers are bril l liant figures at balls and social gath • arings. but they are very deficient in professional training and practice. It is toe much to expect burning patrio tism in America naval service ln case of war with Japan.

It is estimated that 12,644 square miles are underlain by coal-bearing rocks—that is, rocks that probably contain some coal seams —and that 1,238 ssuare miles contain workable coal, ranging in age from carboniferous to tertiary and in com position from anthracite of good qual ity through high-grade semi-bitumi nous steam and cooking coals and or dinary bituminous coal to lignites of various characters. Many of the deposits are of great thickness, especially where the coal carries a large carbon content; but, unfortunately, high grade of coal and great thickness of beds are, as a rule, accompanied by geologic structure un favorable to mining. From the Pacific coast to Bering Sea and the Arctic slope, through the valleys of Copper and Yukon rivers and their tributaries, coal beds are widely distributed; and although It is unlikely that any except the hlg!\- | grude coals of the Pacific coast and 1 the Matanuska and Bering river fields I are suitable for shipment far from ! the mines, many others may be locally: of extreme Importance and great j I The coal-mining Industry of Alaska greatest Is still practically undeveloped, the total production for 1906—the year of output—being 6,660 short tons, valued at $20.000. The most ac tive mining operations have been on Cook Inlet, ln Seward peninsula, and at Cape Llsburne, all undertaken to provide fuel for local use, by small coastwlse or river steamers, at mining j camps and at canneries. | Alaskun coals have In recent years j been the subject of a large amount of I special investigation by the geological j survey, and In addition much informa- j Mon concerning coal has been gath ered each year since regular geologic work was begun in Alaska, by survey was Alaska, by survey parties working primarily on other problems. A brief summary of the re sults of these Investigations, Illus trated by a map showing the distribu tion and area of coal and coal-bearing rocks, is included in the "Report on Progress of Investigations of Mineral Resources of Alaska in 1906," pub lished by the survey as Bulletin No. 314. This summary, prepared by G. C. Martin, is not intended to be complete in itself, but it supplements more complete and comprehensive sum maries which have already been pub lished and to which reference Is made, and Is preliminary to more detailed discussions that will be published on the completion of investigations now progress. The work of the season of 1907 will include studies of the coal-bearing rocks of the southeastern part of the territory and of the Yukon coal fields so far as they are accessible from Yu kon river. Field work was begun early in May by W. W. Atwood, who Is as sisted by H. M. Eakin, and Mr. At wood reports the work ln southeastern Alaska already completed. It Is be lieved that the investigations this year will add materially to existing knowl edge of the coal resources of the terri tory. ♦ WANTED. ♦ Five salesladies apply Tuesday ♦ «- morning ready to work. *At Wat- ♦ ♦ son Clothing Co., Meaker ft Coch- ♦ — ran. ♦ Century Printing Co.

July 8.—To meet the increased cost of living, clerks in the various executive departments here have formed the "Departmental Co operative guild," have incorporated It and intend to open in a short time a series of stores in which can be pur chased ofod, clothing, furniture, medi capital stock of the guild at present consists of 26,000 shares having a par value of $10 each, fully paid and non assesable, and a large amount of It has already been subscribed for. The officers of the guild are Dr. A. Patten, president, representing the treasury department; C. W. W. Hanger, depart ment of commerce and labor, vice pres ident; Amos Tyree, war department, secretary; Dr. M. J. Holmes, war de partment, assistant secretary, and Ben jamin U. Steele, treasury department, treasurer. The following statement has been Issued as to the necessity for the organization of the guild: Objects and Purposes. "The Increased and Increasing cost of the necessities of life Is one of the most evident features of our countrys industrial growth. The increase ln liv ing expenses appeals with special force to all persons, who. having a fixed sal ary. do not participate ln the general prosperity, and who are obliged to pay from 20 to 50 per cent more for house hold commodies than when their com pensation was set. In the case of many thousands of portions ln the gov ernment service today the salary has never been changed since It was es tablished on a hard time basis during a period of Industrial depression. The signs of the times Indicate no relief; on the contrary, there is every reason to believe that the cost of living will greatly increase In the next few years, and there Is now pending an advance of 10 per cent in the price of the very 'staff of life' through excessive de mand for American wheat for export. As to the Benefits. "The Department Co-operative guild, Incorporated, has been estab lished primarily to meet the existing conditions and to enable Its members to^procure all kinds of household and personal articles at the minimum cost. The guild is concerned rather with money saving than with money tak ing, and every benefit arising from Its operations is shared absolutely by the members, "The purpose of the guild Is to es tabllsh various kinds of stores at which members may purchase goods at the ruling market prices. The advantages arise from the abll'ty of the members | tf> obtain credit to the amount of their stock holdings in excess of one share an< ^ f r °m the return to each mem her of 90 per cent of the profits aris ing from his trade; furthermore, the profits from the trade of non-members are returned to members in the form profits from the trade of non-members are returned to members in the form of a dividend on the stock. Member ship Is restricted to persons in the service of the government of the United States or of the District of Co lumbla."

Many of the 65 excited passengers Jumped into the raging canyon wa ters, but few were drowned, most of the people saving themselves by clam bering on the rocks of Ringbolt Island. The steamer was below Hazelton when the accident happened, passing through a narrow canyon which can be run only at certain stages of water, and where the strong current carries river boats three quarters of a mile In a minute and a half. The port quarter crashed against the rocky wall and the stem swung round and battered against the opposite fall, for the boat was longer than the canyon was wide. The big vessel heeled over with the weight of water and sank mptdly. Some of the passengers jumped from the boat to the island. Others took to the water and some of them floated through the canyon on debris and were picked up by Indians ln canoes. Low rent and tew expenses la why we can aell Groceries so reasonable. R C.

It used to be considered that only urinary and bladder troubles were to be traced to the kidneys, but now modern science proves that nearly all diseases have their beginning in the disorder of these most important organs. The kidneys filter and purify the blood— that is their work. Therefore, when your kidneysare weak or out of order, you cau understand how quickly your entire body is affected and how every organ seems to fail to do its duty. If you are sick or " feel badly," begin taking the great kidney remedy, Dr. Kilmer's Swamp-Root, because as soon as your kidneys are well they will help all the other organs to health. A trial will convince anyone. If you are sick you cati make ho mis take by first doctoring your kidneys. The mild and the eoctraordinary effect of Dr. Kilmer's Swamp-Root, the great kidney remedy, is soon realized. It stands the highest for its wonderful cures of the most distressing cases, and is gold on its merits by all druggists in fifty-cent and one-dollar size bottles. You may have a sample bottle Horn, of Sw^mp-Root by mail free, also a pamphlet telling you how to find ont if you have kidney or bladder trouble. Mention this paper when writing to Dr. Kilmer & Co., Bing hamton, N. Y. Don't make any mistake, but remember the name, Swamp-Root, Dr. Kilmer's Swamp-Root, and the ad dress, Binghamton, N.

All arrangements tor the opening of the State Summer Normal School at Coeur d'Alene on July 15 have prac tically been completed, and It la ex pected that the school will be a great success from the begnnlng. The Com mercial club of Coeur d'Alene have provided a novel feature by having set aside a beautiful and shady tract of park land near the lake and provided the same with water and electric lights, so that it is an ideal camping ground. A special committee of which Superintendent Barton is chairman has made arrangements for the provision of tents with floors and board sides which for a nominal rental will be supplied to the students. Board will be provided by several private board ing places. The committee now esti mate the whole expense, including cost of living and tuition, at $38 to $40 for the six weeks, which makes an excep tionally Inexpensive school for the summer. The dally program of classes is being arranged so that the work will be from 8 to 1 each day, thereby giving the afternoon for study, recrea tion and outing. The State Summer School affords unusual opportunities for combining a summer outing with a summer of spe cial study and, situated on the beauti ful Lake Coeur d'Alene, Is what will doubtless eventually become the ''Chautauqua'' of the Inland Empire.
