Scientist Asserts Ships at Sea Will Be
Controlled From Shore and Gasoline
Will Be Grown Like Corn.
In the lobby of a big Fifth avenue
dab one evening recently, a group of
scientific men were discussing the war
as being the necessity that will bring
about some startling inventions, notes
a New York correspondent. If tbe
sprinkling of lntellectnral inmlnatt
were not stamped by genius, It Is prob
able that an ordinary bystander would
bave tapped bis forehead knowingly.
One of them was telling about a sci
entist who Is already telephoning to
airplanes without wires. And another
quoted a famous Inventor who sold
that It would only be a short while
until all telephone wires would be abol
ished as unessential.
"The fact is," ha Bald, "that tele
phone wires do not in reality carry
our messages. Every scientist knows
that. Back of It all Is the great proc
ess of thought which we are only be
ginning feebly to understand.
"The more we delve Into this proc
ess of thought—whatever it Is—the
more we come to the conclusion that
the material phenomena is the pro
jection of thought. We konw that ev
ery material thing comes from a
thought or an Idea.
"We are arriving at the conclusion
that even space is thought, for we are
annihilating space every day through
a thinking process. It will not be
many generations before every ship at
sea la controlled by thought from
shore. Our trains are going to be run
without fuel, and we are going to grow
gasoline Just like we raise corn."
Center of Fashion.
Paris, the center of the world's fash
ions, Has no fewer than 60,000 women
dressmakers, not counting designers
and fitters, which would bring the
number up to close on 100,000. The
designers, who sketch out their Idea*
In pen and Ink or with water-colors,
and often originate the fashions that
prevail throughout the world, earn
easily over four figures a year, ob
serves a correspondent.
Good mannequins are the most diffi
cult to obtain. Some of the lurgest
Parisian houses employ twenty or thir
ty. whose whole time Is passed In try
ing on dresses before the eyes of fash
ionable French women. Naturally the
numbers are fewer nowadays, and
many of the most famous mannequins
of Paris are now nursing In the hos

Coining of Yankee Dollars. •
It was in 1792 that the congress of
the United States authorized the es
tablishment of a mint In Philadelphia.
With the founding of this Institution
the "almighty dollar" began to come
Into Its own. The Spanish dollar had
been common -In America for years,
and when Governor Morris attempted
to harmonize all the moneys of the
states he took the dollar as a stand
ard. The plans of Morris were later
amended by Jefferson, who proposed
to strike four coins upon the basis of
the Spanish milled dollar—a gold piece
of the value of $10, a dollar In sliver,
a tenth of a dollar In silver and ■
hundredth of a dollar In copper.

Infected Animals Develop Into
Pot-Bellied Runts.
Mixtures Containing Charcoal, Cop
peras, Etc., Are Believed to Be of
Value as Preventives—San
tonin la Scarce.
(Prepared by the United States Depart
ment of Agriculture.)
Intestinal worms are common In
hogs and are particularly Injurious to
growing pigs. Insufficiently fed, neg
lected pigs living in dirty pens and
yards, fed from filthy troughs, drinking
contaminated water, bathing In old hog
wallows, and rooting and sleeping In
manure piles and stack bottoms soon
become Infested with worms. Such
pigs do not thrive, but develop Into
pot-bellied, profitless runts. Pens,
should be kept clean and dry and tbe
manure frequently removed.
Mixtures containing charcoal, cop
peras, etc., are believed by some to be
of value as preventives and destroy
ers of worms, but their usefulness
probably depends upon their general
effect on the condition of the pig and
Male Hog Louse.
not upon their action on the worms.
Other things being equal, a pig In
good condition is better able to re
sist tbe attacks of worms than one that
ls not In good condition. Mineral mix
tures may, therefore, by helping to bal
ance the ration, tend to Increase the
powers of resistance to the 111 effects
of worms and other parasites. They
Should, however, be classed as tonics
or conditioners rather than as worm
preventives or destroyers.

G-)od Results Obtained by Clipping at
Ohio Station—Ripening of Weed
Seeds Prevented.
More and better grasses were noticed
to result from clipping pastures after
harvest In a survey made by the Ohio
agricultural experiment station. Bri
ers are removed aud the ripening of
weed seeds is prevented, so that the
grasses and clover have greater
chances for growth. Where the mow

be used.

found to be very effective In expelling
Intestinal worms In experiment» con
ducted by the zoological division of
the bureau of animal industry :
Withhold all feed and water for 24
hours, then give each pig from 1 to 2
ounces of castor oil to which has
been added oil of American wormseed
Common Roundworms of Hogs—-a,
Male; b. Female.
as follows: Pigs weighing less than
50 pounds, one-half teaspoonful ; pigs
weighing 50 to 100 pounds, one tea
spoonful; large hogs, two teaspoon
fuls. Each pig should be dosed sep
arately If the best results are to be
obtained. Castor oil should always be
given with oil of American wormseed.
Other laxatives are cot satisfactory.,
Dangerous to Drench Hogs.
Drenching hogs is dangerous, as
they are liable to get the remedy Into
the lungs. With sufficient assistance
pigs may be held, the mouth kept open
by means of a couple of loops of wire
or rope, or leather straps, aud the
medicine given in a tablespoon or a
large kitchen spoon. By this method,
though It is troublesome, one may be
certain that each pig gets bis proper
dose. After dosing with the above
mixture pigs may be fed and watered.
Repeat the treatment In ten days.
Change Pastures Frequently.
Healthy hogs become infected with
Intestinal worms from feed, water and
soli which have been Infested by the
droppings from Infected hogs,
quent change of pasture Is one of the
best means of reducing worm Infesta
tion to a minimum. Hogs, however,
should not be allowed to run at large
on open range, as this favors the
spread of hog cholera.
Swine can be raised when they are
confined in limited quarters If the
quarters are kept clean, but they will
So much better and stay in better
health If they have plenty of pasture.
Divide the pasture Into convenient
areas, so that the hogs can be shifted
from one pasture to another. This
not only provides fresh pasture,'but
affords an opportunity to disinfect
the pastures by plowing and reseeding
or by exposure to the sun and weather.
8oy Bean Spoils Rather Easily Unless
Properly Handled—Avoid Pest
ling and Molding.
Soy bean seed spoils rather easily If
not properly handled, and care should
be used Cn curing aiN storing. After
threshing the beans should be watched
carefuly to avoid heating and mold
ing. When good and dry there Is no
such danger. A good plan Is to spread
the beans out on the floor Immediate
ly after threshing and shovel them
over from time to time until they are
thoroughly dry, then they may be safe
ly be put into socks or bins. The store
room should be dry and have a free
circulation of air. Soy bean seed loses
vitality very rapidly and It la not safe
to hold seed for planting purposes lor
more than two seasons.
Quickest and Cheapest Way Is to In
crease Poultry and Egg Produc
tion—Eat Less Meat
The quickest and cheapest way of
adding to our meat supplies is to in
crease poultry ajid egg production. To
double this production next year will
give ns 6,500,000,000 pounds of meat
food,In the form of poultry and eggs.
By having this amount of poultry food
for domestic consumption we will eat
less pork and beef, and can send al-t
most that many pounds of meat to Eu
rope. We cannot Increase any of the
meat animals as rapidly or economical
ly as poultry.
With Supply of Red Clover or Alfalfa
Hay Animals Can Be Carried Until
Nearly Spring.
With plenty of roughage, such as
red clover or alfalfa hay, sheep can
be carried until nearly spring wltl

to furnish succulence, although some
losses and a good deal of trouble
have resulted from Improper feeding
of silage.

Although no official figures were given out In the deal which gnve Grover
Alexander and Bill Klllifer to the Cubs, it was unofficially announced that
President Weeghman figured that he forked over $100,000 for the star battery.
If such is the case It Is biggest deal ever executed in baseball.
Back about 1911 the baseball world was startled when the New York
Nationals paid $11,000 for Rube Marquard, then with the Indianapolis club.
No such deal ever had been turned before. The next year the Pittsburgh club
paid, according to authentic reports, $22.600 to the St. Puul club for Pitcher
Marty O'Toole and the Marquard deal was so far eclipsed that It soon was

"Red" Klllifer Pulls One That Escapes
Attention of Everybody
fexcept Umpires.
Berle Casey, the umpire, who Is win
tering In Portland. Ore., tells what he
considers Is the prize "boner" story of
the const league. It passed unnoticed.
In the last series between the Angels
and Tigers "Red" Klllifer was playing
third. The angels were in the field
with two Vernon players on the sacks.
Casey Was umpiring behind the plate.
The ball was tossed around the infield.
When it came to Klllifer he looked at
It, and seeing that It was slightly
roughened, tossed It to the Los Angeles
bench, calling for another ball.
Casey waited a moment, then tossed
another into play. Boles, who was
catching, turned around and said, "Did
you call tlmeT"
He hadn't, and the Vernon players
could both have scored had they been !
"wise" to the situation.
Neither crowd nor players of either
team noticed this lapse of memory on
the part of Klllifer.
Cutting Players and Salary.
A reduction In salaries and a cut
ting down in the size of the squads
will probably be recommended at the
coming meeting of the Pacific Coast
