The denartm-nt of agriculture in Washington has been racking a tbor ough investigation of disease among farm animals, and the report shows that farmers and dairymen are to have much the same fight against tuberculosis among animals that the physicians have with the disease among members of the human family. Tuberculosis is now the most common disease among cattle, and it is becoming more and more common among swine. especially those raised on farms with dairy cattle, xne report snows mat on the average the government meat in specters condemn approximately 11,000 carcasses of beef and 65,000 carcasses of hoes each year. This means a loss of 440,000 on cattle and $780,000 on hogs, ft tQtal of $1 220.000 at current prices. This does not include part of carcasses condemned. This on its face looks serious enougn it , , . , , . T. ior iuo pruuueer ui uooi auu yvm. a true tnat tne conaemnea carcasses were taken from a total of over 31,000,000 hogs and cattle inspected, bo that the percentage is not very large. The more serious phaee of the problem is that the diease is increasing and therefore unless aomething is done to check its progress, the ravages will:be greater in future. The losses to dairymen are reported as more serious, uattie in tne dairy nerue are generally condemned by the state in spectors in their fight against the spread of the plague, and the federal depart ment has no record of the exact num- her destroyed on this account, but it is stated that the infection generally spreads through a herd until from 50 to 80 ner cent of the cows are affected. The losses to the dairymen from de crease in the milk supply and from de preciation and death of animals are enormous. The federal and state authorities are doing their best to find a remedy and check the spread of this dread disease, but they can do little or nothing with out the active co-operation of the farm ers and dairymen themselves. It is un to the farmer to study the problem and to take every precaution against the infection of his herd. Killed 10,160 in a Year. There has come to our table an ab stract of statistics of railways of the United States for the year ending June 30, 1906. It shows the gross earnings of the 313 operating roads for the year were $2,246,521,166, being 8163,938,760 greater than'from all the roads in 1905 The total amount of wages and sala riBH naid employes of these lines in 1906 was $900,828,208, which is an increase of $60,883,528 over 1905. There were 1, 460.707 on the Day rolls during 1906, an excess of 78,511 over 1905. According to the report, lu.ibu per nnns were killed in railway accidents purine the year ending Jane 30, 1906, ntJ n tuxB number 418 were passengers and 3,807 employes.

I Th number of persons reported on the pay rolls of the 313 operating roads on June 30, 1903, was 1,460,707, which is equivalent to 707 employes per 100 miles of line, and shows an exce.-s of 78.001 over the total pay roll for 1905 and indicates a total pay roll approach- ng 1,550,000 employes. The total amount of wages ana sala ries reported as paid to employes of the 313 operating companies in 1906 was $900,828,808, or 860,883,528 more than was paid all the railway employes in the United States in the preceding year. The Little Bural Church. The problem of the rural Missouri church does not find so simple solution. The rural population unites on the pub lic school. The union church is, because of denominational differences, less near at hand. Some localities have under taken to eolve the problem of having a church building, open to all denomina tions. John Butler, at Perche, gave such a rural church to the school district, to be "open to anybody who would preach Christ." Others have found it possible to assign certain sections of territory to certain denominations, ine territory in this manner is divided and each sec tion will support pastor and regular church service. Both plans are excep tional rather than general in their mie-1 sion. The rural Missouri church and j the rural Missouri Sunday school have i not grown in strength and adaptation to new conditions as have rural public state schools, it may be that consoli dation and transportation will tomorrow be involved in behalf of the Sunday school and church.

Small COUUtry puai, uuiuc auu store, the country hall or assembly room is apparently coming in Missouri to its place. Because the farmer can have his ' mail nrl town nurchases delivered at hie door, he does not intend to forsake the assembling of himself together. The condition of women in the rural Missouri home of to-morrow will find betterment as compared with her condi tion in the rural home of to-day.

GREEK GIRL SPONGE DIVERS. Globe Trotter Writes Enthusiastically of Expert Himla Maidens. "We were cruising In the Mediter ranean in the late fall." said a globe trotter, "and on a golden afternoon we stopped, beside z, little fleet of sponge divers. Nearly nude, the divers sat on the edge of the boat. They held big stones that would help them descend. One at a time they inhaled three or four long breaths, and then plunged with their great stones into the blue water. One boat interested us; Its divers seemed so graceful and young. We drew nearer, and, by Jove, the divers were all girls. 'They were young Greek girls from Himla, an island near Rhodes. It seems that in Himla the sponge div ing is carried on by girls altogether. These girls seemed very expert. "Their dark hair knotted on their shapely heads, they reclined on the sun-warmed deck till their turn came. Then, graceful as stage (lancers, they eaped overboard, and in the sea's dim green depths tugged at the black sponge growths. rhe captain said the Himla girls were not permitted to marry till they had brought up a certain quantity of ponges from a certain specified iepth." MEANT END OF FRIENDSHIP. Long-Headed Woman Knew Trials of Dresser and Dressee. A well-to-do woman, who, through change ol fortune, was obliged to earn her own living, decided upon dress making. She applied to a number of riends for patronage. To her chagrin several of them refused. 'I shall not let you sew for me." aid one woman frankly, "because I aluc your friendship so highly. We - IC ire excellent menus nuv.. u )uu make mv clothes we shall not dp. never yet saw friendship that was strong enough to stand tne test oi wrinkles, crooked seams and sagging skirts. Of course, I don't say that vour work will be marred by those defects, but it is likely to be, and I am not going to take ay chancces on a severing of our mutual regard. Even David and Jonathan would have been calling each other names it eitner had stuck a needle in the others ward robe. I am willing to lend you money and to spend days in looking up other customers for you, hut when it comes to making my clothes, never." Antiquities at Ephesus. One of the most valuable pockets of antiquarian treasures dlscoverea in recent years has been unearthed by u. G. Hogarth of the Britisb museum. who is engaged in archeological ex- ntnratinns at Enhesus. Some of the coins among the 4,000 objects taken out at the artemisium are attributed to dates between 700 and 600 years before Christ, antedating the time of Croesus. Some of them are of still remoter periods, and are believed to be older than any other coins known to be in existence. Among the most interesting discoveries are rude terra cotta figures of the goddess Artemis while some of the objects jewels and crystals, amber and bea;!s, bone. ivnrv hrnnMs and articles made of gold, silver and electrum, were prob ably devoted by devout worshipers to the personal use of Artemis. Phonograph That Calls Police. A phonographic device that will call the police by telephone adds a new hazard to the ever-Increasing dangers of the burglar's profession, says the Technical World. When an attempt is made to force a window or door with which the proper connections have been made, an electric current oper ates a phonograph in the garret The machine calls up central and asks for the Doiice station. The phonograph then informs the officers of the rob bery, giving street and number, and repeats this information as long as ho rftvfir Ik down. Meantime the intruder, all unconscious that an alarm has been rung in, virtually walks into a trap, and if the call is promptly responded to is soon in the lock-up. Wealthy and Practical Sheriff, Robert W. Chandler, the millionaire sheriff of Duchess county. New York is believed to be the richest American citizen holding such a position. He went into office on a reform wave niedsred to economy and is making eood. He is feeding prisoners for little over 60 cents a week. In order to roh this fieure Deputy Sheriff Townsend cut off plum pudding and for dessert on Sunday. On learning this Mr. Chandler said "That's all right.
