Climbing Mountains.
Is a fascinating and invigor
ating pastime. It developes not
the bodj only, but the mind. The
Alpine Peaks of Switzerland have
their counterpart in our own
country, in the Sierras, the Cas
cades, and parts of the Rockies.
The greatest glacial peak of
the United States is Mt. Ranier
in Washington, more than 15,500
feet high. This magnificent
mountain has 15 or more giant
glaciers creeping down its sides
and discharging their glacial de
tritus into the Columbia river or
Puget Sound.
A climb to the summit of this
is a mountaineering feat worthy
of any mountaineer. For 25 centf

Tfce Rage for Speed.
The writer in the Horseless
Age claims that traveling at high
speeds in motor ears breeds a
form of disease or a mania for
such recreation that is positively
dangerous. This may be putting
the facts too strongly, but there
is certainly a limit beyond which
it is unreasonable to go whether
you are driving a horse or an
automobile. Before the speed
limit is reached there is wonder
ful exhilaration from the larsce
quantities of fresh air inhaled.

Constantinople. Aug. 9. Four bat
talions of Turkish troops, supported by
artillery, yesterday met and routed a
body of 1,700 Bulgarians near Soro
A band of 300 insurgents has ap
peared near the railway bridge orer
the River Vardar, two hours' distant
from this city. The great fodder depots
at Shamnily, Aydirli and Harmanli
have been burned.
News received here as to the ex
tent of the Bulgarian revolutionary
movement in the villayet of Monastir
is conflicting. In consular dispatches
from Monastir the opinion is expressed
that the insurrection broke out a fort
night before the bands were in readi
ness, presumably because the leaders
were disconcerted by the active pre
ventive measures adopted by the au
thorities. The Bulgarian inhabitants
in a number of villages have fled to
the mountains for refuge,
Produces a Sensation.
Sofia, Bulgaria, Aug. 9.The fresh
insurrectionary outbreak in Mace
donia, which was believed to be im
possible, has produced a sensation
everywhere. It is believed that the
latest provocations by the Turkish1
troops drove the insurrectionists to
despair. The Bulgarian government is
resolvedto ^intain friendly relations
with the porte and to prevent bands
from crossing the frontier, but a pop
ular movement is feared in the event
of massacres of peaceful Macedonians
by the Turkish soldiers.
Meetings of prominent Macedonians
were held here and measures for suc
soring the sufferers from the insurrec
tion were discussed, but no decision
was reached.
Empress of China Summons the
Pekin, Aug. 9.Because of the es
cape of several reformers the throne
has ordered that the gates of the city
be watched.
There was a meeting at the summer
palace yesterday of all the princes of
the dynasty. They were summoned
by the dowager empress, it is under
stood, to consider measures to insure
the safety of the throne and the grant
ing of further concessions to Russia,
with which government, it is believed,
the dowager empress has long nad an
agreement for the protection of the
dynasty. The assembly of the princes
is believed .to have been inspired by
disclosures at the trial of the martyr
reformer, Shen Chien, who was beaten
to death by order of the empress on
July 31.

Durand, Mich., Aug. 9.The death
list, as a result of the collision early
yesterday in the Grand Trunk yards
between the two sections of Wallace
Brothers' circus train, stands at twen
ty-three, seven of whom are in the
morgue unidentified. Coroner Farrer
yesterday afternoon impanelled a Jury
which viewed the remains and ad
journed until Aug. 14, when the in
quest will be held.
The circus travels in two trains of
about thirty-five cars each. It was
8:46 o'clock when the first section
pulled into the west end of the Grand
Trunk yards hce. A red ltght was
hung on the rear car tr stop the sec
ond section. Engineer Probst of Bat
tle Creek, who was running the en-'
gine of the rear train, says he saw
this red light and applied the air
To His Horror
they refused to work. He reversed
his engine, but the momentum of the
train behind was too great, and with a
crash that aroused all of the town neur
the yards the two trains met. Three
cars of the statianary first section
were telescoped and the engine and
five cars of the moving train were de
molished. The rear car of the fiist
section was a caboose in .,..ich the
trainmen* were sleeping, and the next
two were filled with sleeping circus
employes. The greatest loss of life
was in the caboose. One of the
wrecked cars of the second section was
occupied by five elephants and several
camels. One of the elephants and two
Were Killed Outright,
while the other animals and their
trainer escaped. With the exception
of this car none of the menagerie was
wrecked, the other carB containing
canvas or wagons. There was com
paratively little excitement among the
wild animals.
In discussing the question of respon
sibility for the horror, the railroad of
ficials unhesitatingly lay it to Engineer
Probst of the secondJ section of the
train, whose home is in Battle Creek.
Probst says it was due to air brakes
on his train refusing to work, but the
officials declare that he could have
stopped the train in time to avoid
Serious Consequences.
The official report on the accident
I issued by Supt. Brownlee declares
I positively that the air brakes have
i been tested since the ace. lent and
found to be in perfect condition and
there is evidence that they were not
applied. One of the officials in -dis
cussing the accident and itB cause said
he believed that Engineer Probst nad
exhausted his air in checking his train
several times between Lansing and
Durand and failed to again charge his
tanks. The head brakeman and the
fireman, who were on the locomotive,
bear out Engineer Probst's statement
that the brakes refused to work.

For Those With Stomach Habit.
A Philadelphia baler is authority
for the assertion that the latest fad
of dyspeptics Is bread ma-ie with sea
water, instead of fresh water. "It
has a saltier taste," he says, "than
we are accustomed to, but it is very
palatable. In fact, he who likes salty
things Is apt to like It better than
the other kind of bread. A physician
asked me about three morths ago to
make some of this bread for his
patients. At first I made six loaves
a day, but now I make thirty. My sea
water comes up to me from Atlantic
City three times a week. The dys
peptics who buy the bread sRy it is
the only kind they can *resh
-without discomfort."
I recently purchased the shop and
have greatly replenished the stock, which
is the most complete in the county. All
work guaranteed to give satisfaction.

Responsible for the Death of Many
American Soldiers.
Capt Charles Kieeffer, a United
States army surgeon, says the Phil
ippines aie Infested with mosquitoes
more troublesome su"' dangerous from
a medical point, of view than those
that swarm In the Jersey swamps. A
strange malady known as fllaria is
traced directly to them, and is com
mon among the American soldiers
quartered on the Islands. Soldiers
contract the disease by drinking
water from staKniint pools In which
the mosquitoes have laid their eggs.
The rirst Indication of filaria ap
pears in the form of a worm in the
victim's thorax. This develops into
elephantiasis, which causes the pa
tient terrible pains, accompanied -by
a constant cough. The sufferer la
worst at night, and the patient be
comes a prey to Insomnia.
The only remedy lies in an opera
tion, which in itself Is dangerous and
rarely successful. If the worm, which
Is a female, is injured and dies
through the operation, Its poison gets
into the blood, the disease is increased
a thousandfold and the chances of re
covery are small.
