THE PIOCHE RECORD. CandV Young Woman -m . Made Her Way by Oiri Selling Fudge By MAUDE E. BERNARD NEW INVENTION OF CURTISS, THE AVIATOR L I OT 60 very long ago a young girl in the northern part of New York state decided to go to college, but when ways and meana were discussed it was found that she would have to supplement in some way the limited amount the family could afford to give her. Fortunately her faith in herself and in human nature in general was her chief asset and she finally convinced her parents that if she only could get in the college she could An iha rut Rb waa Tint nnitp dure linw thin feat WAR frninsr to be accomplished, but her courage was high. During the first few weeks she discovered that the college girls' fondness for candy was no fable and she made some fudge and other candies from her own recipes, which had in her home town been considered superior to anything that could be bought, and offered the candy for sale among the girls. It met with instant success, and she made more, which she disposed of with such rapidity that in a short time the demand had grown among the girls in the college and their friends to such an extent that she found it necessary to open a place of business outside the college. Still she had her way to pay through college and could not take large financial risks, so she rented a space under the stairs in one of the busiest nnsineas buildiners and used a kitchen table for a counter. In this she displayed her various goods done up in attractive boxes with each boi labeled with the contents and weight and price, one could not afford to keep a salesgirl' behind the counter while she was obliged to be absent, and here is where her great faith in human nature served her. She tacked a card up, saying, "Make your pur chase and leave the money," and she declares she never lost a cent or a piece of candy. Today this same girl has a chain of candy shops throughout the country and she iB fully convinced that the secret of her success is the faith she had in the old college days with the little stand under the stairs.

CURTISS' achievements with his hydro-aeroplane at San Diego Bay, Cal., have caused a marked sen sation in military and avlatorlal circles. For the first time in the history of modern flight, the aviator rose from the surface of the water on which his machine rested, made wide, circling sweeps, and then alighted on the bay with the grace and ease of a gull. The hydroplane, which Is fastened to the bottom of the aeroplane, consists of a steel, airtight, shallow compartment, seven feet wide and four feet long. A similar but smaller hydroplane is placed under the front control of the aeroplane, outriggers being attached to the lower planes of the latter to prevent the whole arrangement from tilting sideways while rushing through the water. The army and the navy had representatives and assistants present at Mr. Curtlss' flights with the new Invention. SCIENCE IS LACKING More Care Taken in Stock Raising Than in Infants. Physician In Address Before Medical Society Asserts That Babies Are Being Neglected Birth Rate Decreasing. The elusive germ discovered in every thing conceivable has been caught hiding in another stronghold by British scientists recently and the humble instrument of his propagation proves to be nothing more than an old shoe. The shoe dealer and the cobbler are to be subjected to medical inspection if the health officers of Manchester carry out their threats because, they declare, millions of germs are conveyed from one person to another by the common practice of trying on 6hoes and also by the transfer of germs from one shoe to another while in the cob bler's hands. In cases of tetanus, scarlet fever or eczema erysipelas, every one is extremely careful to burn or disinfect the clothing, but so often the shoes are overlooked and these diseases are readily conveyed by tbe wearer to his neighbors, especially in the case of scarlet fever. The germ hunter is ever active and it seems to the man who is in love with the good old times when we all drank out of the same rusty tin cup at the spring, that we are not going to be permitted to breathe in the same room with another after a time, but will each wear our own little breath purifier. A man in Ohio recently went the limit when he insisted upon car rying his own car strap, so that when he had to "hang" he would not be forced to use the device which had been besmirched by the genny hands of his fellow travelers. And yet the precautions which we take and which our fathers never heard of are doubtless the only reason why we can live in our congested overpopulatcd quarters and contrive to keep alive at all so look out for your shoes. Lighten the Burdens of Heavy Laden By REUBEN SCHOFIELD Wo must all realize that this life is full of sorrow, and if you personally have had the good luck to escape your share of it you are a very fortunate person. But do not, on that account, allow yourself to grow cold hearted and unsympathetic to others, those poor others. Their lot is often so hard, so lonely, so full of misery. We are here to heal the wounds and bind the broken heart. And the only way we can do this is by being kind, loving and sympathetic. A few words of love will do more to help a sufferer than money sometimes, for heart sickness is much harder to help than hunger and poverty. Show an interest in others; try to help them; go out of your way to lighten the burden of the heavy laden. Do not hesitate to whisper your kindly thoughts in their ears. Don't pass by on the other side. If you are strong, then 1 merciful. Remember that we all look at life from a different standpoint and what might appear to you a mere grain of mustard seed in the path is an almost insurmountable obstacle to your weaker sister or brother. The more one shrinks the more necessary for you to step in and help. Chicago. Speaking before the Chi cago Medical society in the public li brary the other night. Dr. Isaac A. Abt made a plea for more scientific care of infants, saying that "the hu man baby is better than a calf, but more science is applied to Btock raising than to the care of Infants." Doctor Abt's subject was "Recent Advances in Prevention of Infantile Diseases and Death Rate." He spoke principally of the work of the Chicago milk commission, which recently was reorganized under the name of the In fant Welfare society. "With the birth rate constantly de creasing we must cope with this great est of all problems, the conservation of our babies. The country Is facing a crisis as never before in the matter of child raising," said the doctor. "Re cent advances in scientific cattle and hog raising have been much more rapid than in scientific child raising, The situation should be reversed to give the child a square deal. There Is a crying need for education in Amer ica along these lines and especially urgent Is the need for such a reform in the great cities. To do this a sys tematic educational campaign must be started under the leadership of'rthe medical men of the great cities." That the general health of the city of Chicago had improved materially during the past week and that 40 fewer caBes of pneumonia were re ported than during the previous week was the information contained In the bulletin sent out by the city health de partment. But the bulletins stated that the pneumonia death rate had been high since November and would probably continue so until warm weather came again. "It is hoped that the repeated and persistent warnings and advice of the department on the dirty air diseases, due always to bad Indoor air, are be ginning to bear fruit," reads the bulle tin. "So long as people will continue to poison themselves with bad air, Just so long will pneumonia prevail and the pneumanla death rate be high. "Sleep with the windows open 12 to 18 Inches and hall door or transom open. An abundance of the lightest and finest bedding Is cheaper than doctor nnd hospital bills. Don't shut your carriage or limousine up so tight. Demand better air in street, elevated and steam cars. Blow out house, of- nee, lactory or store several times a day. Blow yourselves out occasional' ly by deep breathing three to five min utes Derore an open window or on a rear porch. When all are away from the home, return to sn aired, cold house, rather than a hot, stuffy one. Burglar window stops and a little ex tra coal will reward you with better health." EARTH AND MARS ARE ALIVE All Other Worlds Dead and Dried Up, eays Prof. Lowell in Lecture to New Yorkers. New York. "Mercury and Venus are already dead and dried up worlds, mars is rapidly approaching a state of wrinkled old age, and the earth Is next In the procession headed toward the extinction of all life," according to Dr. j-ercivai Lowell, head of Lowell ob servatory, who Is in New York for a series of lectures before scientific bodies. Mars Is certainly inhabited by some character of organized life," Doc tor Lowell said In his opening lecture, and the Martians have far greater reason to deny that there is life on the earth than we have that they do not exist. "But there Is no life on any other planets besides the earth and Mars, all other members of the solar system being either already dried up, so that life, animal or vegetable, cannot exist. or else, like Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus and Neptune, are much too young in world evolution, and therefore much too hot from Interior sources, to ad mit of life of any kind. "On Mars, the clearing of the at mosphere, which has been going on since the paleozoic era, has reached perfection. Man indeed must be the sources of constant annoyance to an orderly Creator, for he Is constantly Interfering with the natural course of events. "With city chimneys always belch ing forth smoke and making it rain, man Is responsible for more than half the bad weather of which he com plains. On Mars the sky Is perpetual ly clear from morning till night and from spring to fall. "While the water on the earth Is slowly, but surely, disappearing through subll nation into the heavens, and sinking Into tbe earth, on Mars the seas have already disappeared, though there appear to have been seas there ages ago."

HEAD SOLID MASS OF HUMOR "I think the Cuticura Remedies are the best remedies for eczema I have ever beard of. My mother had a child who had a rash on its head when it was real young. Doctor called it baby rash. He gave us medicine, but it did no. good. In a few days the bead was a solid mass; a running sore. It was awful, the child cried continually. We had to hold him and watch him to keep him from scratching tha sore. His suffering was dreadful. At last we remembered Cuticura Reme dies. We got a dollar bottle of Cuti cura Resolvent, a box of Cuticura Ointment, and a bar of Cuticura Soap. We gave the Resolvent as directed, washed the head with the Cuticura Soap, and applied the Cuticura Oint ment We bad not UBed half before the child's head was clear and free from eczema, and It has never come back again. His head was healthy and he bad a beautiful head of hairi I think the Cuticura Ointment very good for the hair. It makes the hair grow and prevents falling hair."

Birmingham, Eng. Electric shocks for crops. Sunshine turned on by a switch. Stimulus by wire for plants. In the race for efficiency between science and nature, science has taken another step forward, and the above marvels are already accomplished. You can now buy an electric appa ratus for shocking your crops Into growth from a company of which Lionel Lodge is one of the directors. It has come into being as the result of experiments conducted by Sir Oliver Lodge, Uhe famous scientist, who is principal of Birmingham university. Seven installations have recently been erected in Germany, and there are two in Scotland, and two in Eng land and another now on the high seas on the way to Java, where it willbe used to stimulate the growth of sugar cane. An association of the sugar growers there has bought It, and they are go ing to give it exhaustive trials, though it is realized that the conditions of the climate there are adverse. The stations lu Great Britain, Mr. Lodge said, are more or less experi mental, but tbe German installations have been put up as commercial un dertakings. The principal Scottish station Is on farm at Balmakewan, Kincardine shire, and in England there is one on a farm at Salford Priors, and the other is at G. R. Newman's nursery, at Brit- ton, near Bristol. The apparatus consists of an engine running a special machine, which sends only positive electricity along the wires. These wires are very thin, and there fore they discharge a lot of electricity into the air. The current is sent along them at very high pressure. The wires stretch across the Held or garden at a height of 20 feet The escaping current reaches the plants and stimulates their growth. An Increase of SO per cent In the electrically-shocked crop as compared with one grown under ordinary condi tions. Is not considered high. In the case of wheat. It has not yet been possible to get out figures show ing the profit resulting to the farmer, because In some cases the wheat is not yet threshed. An installation to electrify the croDs on 300 acres could be fitted up for $7,500. The treatment Is not good for or beans. It acts as a stimulant and not as a food, having the same effect on the plants as sunshine. Plants are always taking elertriritT from the air, and the apparatus only supplies tnem with more. It is worked from spring until the end of summer. For constipation, biliousness, liver dis turbances and diseases resulting from im pure blood, take Garfield Tea.

That the spread of infantile paralysis may have been due to fleas or other Insects carried In the hair of cats or dogs is a state ment made in a report prepared for the state board of health bv Prof Herbert W. Conn, head of the bioloe- Ical department at Wesleyan university. Professor Conn Investigated an epi demic of the disease which prevailed recently In Middlesex county. He says his Investigations indicate that the malady was not spread by means of milk, water or fruit. "All the facts," says the report, "would be explained on the assump tion that a few fleas may have be come Infected from one or two orig inal cases and that these fleas scat tered themselves over the locality, beind carried to and fro on the skin of animals, and that some of them afterward had an opportunity to get on children and bite them, thus pro ducing the disease.
