There is an idea abroad that skunk
oil is good for rheumatism, neuralgia,
colds, and other ailments. This super
stition probably arose from the fact
that the Indians and early settlers
thought that oils of any animal giv
ing off such a disagreeable odor as.the
skunk must be good for something.
Skunk oil probably is in the same class
as rattlesnake oil, which was thought
to be useful because the bite of this
snake is so poisonous. Indian medi
cine men appear to have made use of
skunk as wel as rattlesnake oil along
with their incantations.
trained physicians, however, attribute
no medicinal value whatever to these
oils. No legitimate use can be made
of skunk oil unless for oiling harness
or shoes, or for making soap. Never
theless there is a small demand for it

The school boys are still discussing
the. mighty Amazon, apparently. At
least some one writes us, without sign
ing his name, to know "why the Ama
zon is called the greatest river in the
world, when the Mississippi River is
still on the map," and we suppose the
writer is a school boy. The Amazon
is called the greatest river in the
world, because it is. The Missouri
and Mississippi combined form a
river of greater length, but they do
not drain so much territory and are
not nearly so great in volume. The
Amazon drains 214 million square
miles of territory, and its estimated
length is 3,5000 miles—which makes
a considerable river. As for its vol
ume, there is nothing else comparable
with it in the whole wide world. It
is two hundred miles wide at its
mouth. A thousand miles from the
sea it is more than four miles in
width. Two thousand miles from its
mouth it is still more than a mile
wide—wider than the Mississippi
River at New Orleans. But still more
startling, the Amazon and its tribu
taries are navigable for thirty thou
sand miles; that is. the total navigable
length of the streams making up the
Amazon is thirty thousand miles. And,
better still, we are going to hear a
great deal more about the river in the
future than we have ever heard in the
past. The great basin of the Amazon
can be made to feed and clothe the
world. It has never been developed,
but it is known that there is no other
sucji productive area in the world, and
now that the world is hungrier than it
has ever been; now that war is at an
end, giving people a chance to think
of something else, the great Amazon
River basin is going to be explored
and brought into use for the happiness

Prices Soared in America
In America, from July, 1914, to No
vember, 1918, the increase in the price
of men's overcoats was 185 per cent.
Women's blouses went up 64 per cent.J
Knit underwear advanced 130 per cent,
, . .
percales 264 per cent, shoes 100 per
cent, foods an average of 83 per cent.
fuel 55 per cent, clothing 93 per cent.
These figures are given out as au
thentic by the National Industrial
Conference. One of the least of the
increases is rents, placed at 20 per
cent. The estimated average increase
in the budget of a worker's family is
70 per cent. A 100 million people are
wondering if there will be a return to
the normal and when the decent will
begin. There is no war now with
which to explain prices that have all
along been catalogued as "war prices."
The future is contemplated with cur
iosity and perplexity.
