POCATELLO, Idaho, March 29.—
Ten thousand dollars a minute; over
$166 a second, is the record estab

Saturday afternoon when they, in
just exactly sixteen minutes raised

Rickard, manager of the Willard

July Fourth and to he held if ail in
dications are realized at Pocatello,
that that sum will be taken In at the
gate on the day that has gone down
in the history as one of the greatest
that our country has ever been
called upon to celebrate.
Not unlike the effort put forth
by those patriots of '76 that made
the Fourth of July famous, is the
effort being put forth by J. Robb
Brady and other business men of
Pocatello and the intermountain
west to bring to this country the
greatest influx of new people and
capital in the shortest possible time
that such a gigantic proposition
could be effected.
Plans which were given birth at
a meeting held recently in Pocatello
and attended by over 100 business
men of the intermountain country,
are rapidly being materialized and
the raising of the necessary guar
antee money was the first step in the
program of events which when fully
completed will startle the United
States into realizing that this coun
try, while the newest, is wider awake
to its opportunities than any other
country in the nation.
The second step which, at the
present time, is about accomplished
'rill be the raising of $5000 to send
a delegation of men east to confer
with Rickard and make a personal
attempt to secure the match. This
delegation will be headed by J. Robb
Brady, president of the Pocatello
Athletic club and chief backer of the
campaign now on, while the personal

Simple Apparatus Used by French Sci
entists In Conducting Their
Deadly Gas Attack.
Almost the first thing to meet the
eyes of French hygienists In their war
time campaign for protecting the
younger generation was their old en
emy, the circulating book, well known
as a carrier of disease. The many ob
vious solutions of the problem shared
one disadvantage while killing the
germs they destroyed the book also.
For the method perfected by Doctor
Mursoulan, and now practiced In the
Institute for Wounded and Infirm
Workmen at Montreuil, It Is claimed
that for one-fourth of a cent for each
book, and with safety to operators,
books cun be sterilized without the
slightest Injury. Two pieces of very -
simple apparatus are used, a beater
and a disinfector.
The boater is a long box open at one
end and communicating at the other
with un ordinary stove. Inside of the
beater are wooden rods so arranged
that the turning of a handle will cause
them to strike on the books placed on
a sliding frame. As the rods beat the
books, the heavier particles of duBt
fall out into a tray of disinfectant be
low, and the lighter are carried by an
exhaust fan to a stove, where they are
The books are hung, open, by spring
clips from a skeleton framework, and

which is equipped with a tank contain

temperature is raised to 120 degrees
Fahrenheit, the formaldehyde kills the
germs, and the fumes are carried off

Recrudescence of Dread Disease De
clared to Be a Direct Result
of the War.
Among the plagues to follow the
great war, rabies must be reckoned
with. Already it has reappeared in
England, while from the very begin
ning an increase was apparent in
France. Before the struggle began
Belgium and the districts doomed to
be occupied In northern France
swarmed with dogs, and rabies was
Sufficiently common. This abundance
was due In part to the extensive use of
the dog as a draught animal in those
localities. After the Invasion these
animals moved westward in large num
bers. They appeared to breed as usual
and were under little or no police su
pervision, although conditions for sup
pressing the danger were most favor
able. Rabies showed an Increase from
the North sea to Switzerland, and was
carried far into fhe interior of France.
Here police protection was as good as
absent. The type too is virulent, as
shown by the short incubation period.

in a health bulletin abstracted in the
Journal de Medecine et de Chlrurgie
Pratique, was The officer in charge of
an anti-rabies campaign, which sup
pressed the disease in South Africa

Butter From Coconut Milk.
Butter is churned from coconut
milk as from cow's milk. According
to a British patent of late data the
milk is completely extracted by crash
ing the fresh kernel of the coconut
to s paste with the addition of
skimmed coconut milk from a later
stage. The cellulose is then separated
in a filter press, and the resinous mat
ter Is removed in a centrifugal sepa
rator. The cream la then collected
from the purified milk In a centrifugal
cream separator. The separated cream
Is pasteurised, subjected to a lactic
fermentatloa, churned Into butter, and
this is washed with water. Albumen
or vegetable casein is precipitated
from the skimmed coconnt milk by
heat and powdered gypsum, and is col
lected, washed, pressed and dried.

how long you have been away,
whether you are married, or have

if they dance much in America. If
you speak of books they want to
know what authors you like. If you
say anything about music, they want
you to sing or play. If you are in
