SPRINGFIELD, - - - COLORADO DOCTORS IN UNITED STATES. To one who observe* tbe consider able number or physicians' signs In the average city or large town the report of the last census that there are In the United states only 130,000 physicians, Including osteopaths, psy chopaths, bydropaths and doctors of every description, may come as a rev elation and a surprise. The addition al Information, afforded by the cen sus, that this country has only one doctor to every 660 of Its population Is not likely to relieve the observer’s wonderment until he reflects that a physician to every 660 people Is, after all, a fairly liberal safeguard to the public health, says the Manchester Union. The figures, of course, repre sent the average the country over, some sections of communities having fewer doctors In proportion to their population and some having more. Manchester, for Instance, on tbe basis of the census figures, would have 107 or 108 physicians. The city directory gives 98. Tbe census report on the matter Is not Incredible, yet a person traveling along the streets of almost any New England city and remarking the numerous doctors’ "shingles" would have been almost certain to estimate the percentage of doctors higher than that given by the census Surprise Is frequently expressed be cause there are so many school chil dren who are bad spellers, but there Is a substantial reason for It. In Kansas very few of a shprt list of words were spelled correctly by 113 school and college students. Now these pupils are not taught the way their fathers and mothers were, says the Boston Globe. Under the old pub 11c school system there were spelling bees In the schools and the pupils took pride In excelling. Under the spelling bee system children between the ages of eight and twelve can ac quire quite a large vacabulary by the practice of spelling words of several Bylables. The rising generation Is full of poor spellers, but It Is not their fault, for little attention Is paid to that accomplishment. It would be well for all teachers to put their pupils through a course of spelling every few days, and also to teach them to read aloud. Reading, writing and spelling should go hand In band. Those lack ing these accomplishments are not far removed from the illiterate class. George Wehler, director of physical education at the University of Wiscon sin, has Instituted rest classes for fidgety girls whose nervous systems “go to pieces” under the fatigue fol lowing undue exertion. In & report to the United States Bureau of Educa tion he says: We do not go on the theory that the gymnasium Is good for every one, and. therefore, every one must take gymnastics. The purpose of these classes in rest Is to teach girls who ore restless from the per formance of tasks that ought not to produce fatigue how to acquire con trol over their own nervous systems. Putting every one—girls as well as boys—through a stiff regimen of gym nasium work has had bad results In many instances, and is a thing to be avoided. If the director of physical culture in the University of Wiscon sin makes allowance for constitutional differences students not built to en dure overstrain will have reason to thank the good fortune which made him arbiter of their physical destinies. San Francisco custom house offi cials have Just made the first arrest ever recorded at that port for the of fense of smuggling diamonds - and the diamonds In the case were valued at only $477.50. When the New York : custom house looks at the San Fran cisco custom house It will have to laugh. The assertion that caviare has sup planted the oyster as the appetizing : opening of banquet menus may be pre- | mature.

The waste of millions of dollars’ worth of natural gas which is going on each year in the petroleum wells of the country may be stopped soon by a plan that has just been made j public by the federal bureau of mines, j Briefly, the plan as outlined by oil ex perts of the bureau is to take the so called "wet gas” found in all the oil fields and obtain from it a liquefied gas that can be used for illuminating purposes. This liquefied gas, which is a by-product of the natural gas, is held under high pressue in steel con tainers and can be shipped to locali ties that do not have a gas system. In this way small towns, hotels and country estates may have the advan tage of gas illumination at a fair cost. This gas, it is thought, will also prove an excellent illuminant for light houses, lightships and other public works of a similar nature that must bo located at a distance from a commer cial supply of gas.

DISREGARD STATE LINES RATES MADE FOR STATE TRAF FIC MUST BE ACCORDED IN TERSTATE TRAFFIC. Western Newspaper Union News Service. Washington.—ln an opinion made public recently the Interstate Com merce Commission established the far-reaching principle that a railroad must so adjust its rates that justice will be done between communities re gardless of state lines. If a railroad makes a low rate upon traffic wholly within a state even when forced to do so by a state commission, it must ac cord the same rate to interstate traf fic moving under substantially similar conditions. The principle was laid down by a vote of four to three. The minority held that the powers of Congress were usurped by the majority opinion and that the remedy for such a situa tion should be applied through addi tional legislation. The case practically precipitated a conflict between federal and state au thority over the control of interstate traffic. The opinion of the majority by Commissioner is a definite assertion of the supremacy of national regulatory authority over the powers exercised by any state. It is the first time this as sertion has been made distinctively by the commission. Chairman Prouty and Commissioners Clark and Meyer concurred with Commissioner Lane, and Commissioners Clements, Har lan and McChord dissented. A proceeding brought by the Louisi ana commission placed in issue tho right of interstate carriers to discrim inate in favor of state traffic and against interstate traffic “The gravamen of the complaint,'’ the opinion says, “is that the carrier’s defendant make rates out of Dallas and ether Texas points into eastern Texas which are much lower than those which they extend into Texas from Shreveport, La. A rate of sixty cents carries first class traffic to the westward from Dal las, a distinct of .ICO miles, while the same rate of sixty cents will carry the same class of traffic only fifty-five miles into Texas from Shereveport.” The low rate within the state of Texas was forced upon the railroads by the Texas railroad commission in furtherance of a policy to protect and promote the jobbing Interests of Tex as. The Louisiana commission de clared that Louisiana was being dis criminated against because of the ex action of the higher rates from Shreve port westward and demanded an ad justment. The contentions of Louisiana were sustained by the commission. The majority held: “That if a state by the exercise of its lawful power established rates which the interstate carriers make ef fective upon state traffic, that carrier does so with the full knowledge that the federal government requires it to apply such rates under like conditions upon interstate traffic. To say that an interstate carrier may discriminate against intertate commerce because o> the order of a state commission would be to admit that a state may limit and prescribe the flow of commerce be tween the states. “An interstate carries must respect the federal law and if it is also sub jected to state law it must respect that in so far as it can without doing violence to its obligations under the national authority.’’ Floods Are Feared.

WONDERS OF THE DEAD SEA Interesting Trip Around This Body of Water Told by Jacob B. Bpafford. Jerusalem. —An Interesting trip around the Dead sea was made In a motor boat by Jacob E. Spafford, aj member of the American colony in' Jerusalem. In circumnavigating the lake four or five very fertile plains or ghors were, met with. “These plains,” writes Mr. Bpafford, “naturally bring to mind the connection of the Dead aea with So dom and Gomorrah, the 'oltles of the plain,’ that were overthrown. They have been variously placed on every side of the aea. “These plains and the small oasis at Engedl are the only points where life of any kind and water are to be Defile Leading From Rlvsr Ammon. had. This evidently was a little para dise In the time of Solomon and Is frequently mentioned in the Old Testament. “About ten miles from Engedl lies the peerless natural fortress of Ma cada (Sebbeh), first fortified by the Maccabees, then used as a place of refuge by Herod. At the foot of the tableland can be seen the Roman wall of circumvallatlon and the two Ro man camps on either side of the small ravine. “The fortress, which Is 1,700 miles above, the sea, has steep sides at about an angle of 75 degrees and cannot be approached, except from a connecting neck called the Serpentine. A more inhospitable place or one more disad vantageous to besiegers could not be Imagined. “Eight miles away is Jebel XTsdum. a mountain of rock salt rising to s height of 600 feet. In this mountain Is a large cave which was explored to the extent of about 200 yards, at which point a tapering cylindrical shaft of about 20 feet in diameter was discovered, piercing the solid rock salt 80 feet high, as though through pol ished marble, evidently the effects of the rain. “Great snow white stalactites hung from the celling. The approach to this mountain presents most fantastic ap pearances of walls, buttresses, par apets. projecting towers, etc., caused by the stratification and lay of the salt boulders. “A little south of Masada lies the rich Ghor-el-Mlzra. Here and else where abound the apple of Sodom de scribed by Josephus.” CHEESE DENOTES THEIR RANK Bwiss Family Found Without Aged Variety of Delicacy Is Scorned. Lucerne. —The Eugiish, the Ger mans, and the Norwegians are great consumers of cheese, but the people of Switzerland surpass them all. The cheese of Zermatt is bo bard that one Is obliged to scrape it or cut off chunks with a hatchet, and Its use is con sidered most important on all cere monious occasions. The rank of a Swiss family Is known by the age of Its cheese, and the more nflectlon or respect a guest inspires the harder Is the cheese which Is cut In bis honor. It Is said that there are families In Switzerland whose cheeses date from the first French revolution, and these are served only at weddings and after funerals. The larder in every ramlly Is guard ed with care and the cheese Is named. Upon the birth of a new heir a cheese Is made that takes the name given him or her, and that particular cheese Is never under any circumstances cut until the boy or girl grows up and Is married. On such occasions each of the guests takes a piece of cheese from the bridegroom and from the bride and drinks to their felicity, the cheese held aloft. —Harper’s Weekly. Girls Bteal a Bath.
