IS HIT AS SNAKE CHARMER Abyssinian Flings Big Anaconda Around Cage to Wake It for Visitors. Washington. Duke Dodjazmatch Nado, a member of the imperial Abyssinian delegation now visiting this country, picked up the huge ana conda in the Washington zoo and calmly shook the sleeping reptile into consciousness. Onlookers gasped. The delegation was visiting the zoo, where specimens of the wild beasts which were sent to former President Roosevelt from Abyssinia by Emperor Menelik II are quartered. They had paused by the cage of the anaconda. It was «sleep. One of the party expressed a desire to see the snake move and the guide prodded it with a stick, but it dozed on. When further proddings failed to disturb it Duke Nado thrust his hand into the cage and, taking the reptile by the throat, shook it until it quivered and squirmed into wakefulness. Then he quietly tossed it to the far end of the cage. His act gave the party a thrill, but the duke’s modest deportment indi cated that snake charming is no nov > elty to him.

EAST ADOPTS ENGLISH Elementary Schools of Near East Make Study Compulsory Soon Will Displace French as the Language of Diplomacy and Business. Island of Crete. —The English lan guage promises soon to displace French as the language of business and diplo macy. All through the Near East the Ang lo-American Influence has resulted in thousands of elementary schools insti tuting English as a compulsory lan guage. Even in the Mediterranean Isle, the home of Premier Venizelos, instruc tion in the English language has been arranged for. American scientific agriculturalists are now completing a survey of the soil possibilities of Crete in the same thorough fashion in which they sur veyed the Greek mainland. Cretan soil is somewhat exhausted by cen turies of cultivation without replace ment of soil food, but with an abun dant source of water supply in the mountains and availible fertilizer it is believed much of it will respond to proper treatment. American farming machinery and ' up-to-date methods are needed, and arrangements have been made to sys tematically educate the farmers of Greece and its largest island so that they can increase their yield of crops, Maj. C. G. Hopkins of the Illinois agricultural department, and Lieut. C. J. Bouyoucos, a native Greek educated in America and a former in structor at Michigan Agricultural College, are in charge of the agri cultural survey of Greece and Crete. About five thousand refugees from Asia Minor are sheltered and fed oy the Island of Crete. These are dis tributed in the large tovy-ns of Can dia, Retimno and Canea, and in the small towns of the interior. Ameri fan Cross representatives have visited these refugees as well as the civilian and military hospitals on the Island of Crete, in addition to investi gating the conditions of the Greek soldiery returned from German prison camps and the townspeople of the island. The greatest needs of the inhabi tants of the Island are an institution for the treatment of tuberculosis, med icines and medical supplies, blankets and staple foods. Prospector Wants to Dig Up Old Gold Bar Topeka, Kan.

He is now in Salina for the purpose of getting the gold, but he can’t get permission of the president of the street car to do any digging ai-ound the tracks. Foreman says the president of the car company knows exactly where the bar is, because he told him. Local officers succeeded in lo cating a sister and a brother of Foreman in Indiana, and they have been notified to look after their brrtther. In the meantime the county is keeping Foreman and paying the bill of expense, but Foreman says when he gets his bar of gold he will repay tlie county and have a comfortable fortune left.

REPORT NEW HUNGER DISEASE Workers Find Bodies of Children to Have Excess of Water From Starvation. Prague.—A new hunger disease is | reported among the children of some | of the remote districts of Czecho-Slo ; vakia. It is a form of "hunger odema.” and i appears to be due primarily to the | presence of too much water in the body, owing to starvation. Great care must be taken that the food gets to the children themselves and not to their parents. It seems al most unbelievable, but the parents are frequently accused of being the worst enemies of their own children in re spect to food. “Most of the children are suffering from this strange ‘hunger-odema’ and there is also a tremendous increase in tuberculosis.” Turned Brewery Into Cheese Factory.

J SEEK COLOMBIA MART • American Business Men Invading Southern Republic. Washington.—Advices from Bogota Bay American business men are in vading Colombia for a commercial > campaign and are confident the pend ' Ing Colombian treaty will be ratified! by the United States. By the proposed treaty Colombia is ! to be recompensed for the loss of Pan- I am. The Colombian people felt hos | tllity toward the United States for the, I part it played, and for a long period ' the Colombian field was particularly closed to American business. With ; the end of the European war, Euro ' pean business men swarmed to Colom i bia. American business men were not far behind them. The Cali chamber of commerce, on the west coast has re ceived notice from the United States food administration of a projected vls- I it by a commission of business men j from here. The Americans are pre ! pared to negotiate a new system of j business credits to meet the needs of Colombian men. This will be the beginning of a new era in trade with South American countries, it is said, for the chief com plaints of the Latin-Americans against the methods of the United States con cerns has been on credits and packing. The ministry of agriculture and com merce has issued orders to give every assistance to the Americans in the handling of their samples by remitting custom duties, and special trains will be put at their disposal to visit vari ous sections of the Interior. The party will stop at the port of Buena Ventura, where extensive improvements are be ing made on plans submitted by Amer ican engineers. American interests are coneentrat ’ ing on the west coast of Colombia be cause of its proximity to the canal. .
