Faurot The Famous Detective Who Caught Hans Schmidt In the "Interesting People" depart ment in the November American Mag azine appears an entertaining account of Joseph A. Faurot, chief of the New York City detective force, and a scien tific hunter of criminals. Faurot is the detective who recently caught Hans Schmidt, the New York priest who mur dered a girl, dismembered her body, and threw toe parts wio we nuusun river. Following is an extract from the article: "For the first time in its history the New York detective force found itself with a real scientific criminal hunter as its chief when Detective Captain Joseph A. Faurot was made acting inspector during the graft revelations which came on the 'heels of the murder of the gam bler Rosenthal. "In days gone by the detective arm of the city's police system depended on such men as W. P. Sheridan, the 'Man with Camera Eye,' as he was called, to identify crooks. Sheridan had a won derful eye and a freak memory for faces, but there are few men with such unusual qualifications and the under world has a tremendous population that teems to grow with each generation. "Faurot, a. handsome, soft spoken man, is the American Bertillon. He has taught New York's seven hundred and more detectives how to pick a face out of the crowd by modern, scientific meth ods. The 'bull' as the New York detec tive is known to the crooks, does not de pend upon a photograph. . If the crook he is after has ever been in the hands of Faurot'a headquarters-mr i his Ber tillon record will show that he has one of three three kinds of human nose, vexe, rect, orcave,' as Bertillion classi fied them. If he has a concave nose, pay, then his search is confined to .faces showing that particular form of fea ture. All the others are eliminated. Then there are only four kinds of human ears, the triangular, oval, square and round. Say his crook has an oval ear. This eliminates all those who have ears f the other sort and brings his field clown to those who have concave noses and oval ears. By this weeding process the Bertillion detective has put aside the thousands who have any of the combi nations of ear and nose that might be made with these seven types of features save the one combination of concave nose and oval ear. If one of Faurot'a scientifically taught men lands a suspect he can check up on him surely. The human face is divided into twenty-seven sections and in each sec tion the Bertillion chart will show its peculiarities.- The process of elimination will gradually exclude every human being but this one man, using the cal culus of probabilities. Finally nature lerself comes' to the aid of the detective with the finger prints, for she has given to each of us one certain individual stamp that never changes and that can not be changed the rings, 'islands,' whorls and parabolae to be lound on tho inner cuticle of the digits. ,'. "Chatting with him one day in" the identification bureau, the writer, who fcaa hurl vears of experience as a crimi nal reporter, found that Faurot had taken hia finger prints surreptitiously. The interviewer had placed his hand on a blank sheet of white paper on the detective captains desk. raurot twinkled the white sheet with charcoal dust and thfn by shifting the charcoal dust carefully from side to side brought out the finger prints made by the moist cuticle. "Silverware, glassware, safe tumblers, furniture and all minerals and metals which to the eve f the average man bear no trace of the message which to the average man bear no trace of the messaee sometimes held for weeks the record of the hand that last touched tbera.

Breed from Your Best and They Will Get Better Themselves. By C. S. VALENTINE, . ... Poultry Breeder and Expert. If every farmer would take for his breeding rule "Only the best is good enough for me." farm-raised stock would take a quick jump in quality. Upon the parent depends the value of all that will be raised from them. The best is likely to be worth twice as much as the poor est. Why not have thein all "best"? Do vou raise 100 chickens, about fifty of which are males f Pick out the best one of the fiftv for the head of next year's flock and the next best for a reserve bird in case of accident to the best one. Choose the best sis old hens to put with this best male. Be sure . . . 1 . .1 I J that they lay good eggs, wen snupca, well colored, strong in shell and of good size. Do you know that just doing this will insure you against one-half of the losses you have hadT jou say that, Deing on a larm, yon cannot bother to keep your best birds separate for breeders. If it is really too much trouble to pen off a small flock of breeders, sell off every bird that is second best or worse. Keep nothing but the best next fall, even if only a few, and next year you will see results.' It is not feed alone that gives you a lusty flock. It is a matter of shade or suntihine as the chicks desire it; of wa ter, fresh and in clean dishes, all the while, instead of when you happen to think of it; of milk or meat or bone meal to make a good frame, as well as of bran and corn meal and oat meal and cracked corn. Bran with part middlings is the best frame maker. Milk and meat or bone are well worth while if there are not inserts enough, And sprouted oats, just dug under deep or plowed under for the birds to dig out again, it that is easiest, is one of the best growing and laying feeds. What is a cockerel t Any crower.less than a year old. The cockerel should be not less than ten months old. Early in the. season, if mated with yearling or two-year-old hens, he will give good fer tile eggs when the older bird would not. Can you tell a anappy cockerel? His appetite, his calls to his mates, his com pact build, his size, his strength, his services, all show his quality.- A crow headed, long-necked, long-legged, listless bird is useless as breeder. You can test the strength and vigor of a cockerel by stretching his wings. If he snaps them out of your hands before you can extend them he ia full of vigor. This is a first-class test. . , Copjrrisht 191i, Morse International Agency. All Rights Reserved.) Good Meals Scarce.

Girls in their 'teens are. often troubled with thin blood, making the complexion pale, sometimes greenish, the cheeks thin, the lips colorless. There ia short ness of breath after thefilightest exertion, a general feeling of weariness and a dis inclination to study or work. Sometimes a slight cough causes a feeling of alarm that the lungs may be affected. There is one remedy that will surely correct this form of anfemia in growing girls and that is Dr. Williams' Pink Pills. The action of theee pills in such cases is direct and certain.

In an article on the homicide record of American cities hu- V T. HVifTmnn in the current issue of the Spectator, the year 1912 shows a ..... i .1. ........ .1 n . slight improvement over iu iim" year in 30 large cities. The highest rate was in 1907, when it reached an average of 8.8 for every 100,000 of population. The city of Memphis, Tenn., leads in i, mkir Af VinmipMofi not onlv in 1912 but in the decade ending last year. With . t ri rur mmh- an average oi u. tor every iw.vw lation in Manhattan and the Bronx and an average of 4.4 in Brooklyn last year, New York compares favorably with oth er large cities in the United States. The average in Memphis last year was 64.3 and 62.7 for the preceding 10 years. Chicago last year had an average of 9.6, San Francisco, 12; Cincinnati, 11.3, and New Orleans, 27.5. The comparative mortality from homi cide has been lowest in the eastern states during the last 10 years. The rate per 100,000 of population for the last decade was 4.5 and for lust year 4.6. In the Central states it was 8.1 and 8.9, re ..Kwdvolri in thn southern .. states 15.7 and 20.2, and in the western states 9.6 and 10.8. After drawing comparisons in the aver age for 30 American cities since 1883, Mr. Hoffman says: "Considered by de cennial periods, it i shown that for the first 1(1 vea.rn the nvprare rate remained stationary at 4.9 per 100,000 population against an average of 7.6 for the decade ending with I91Z. in part, tne increase in rat ia nrnhahlv more apparent than real on account of the efforts of the reg istration offices, including the division of vital statistics of the census, to bring about a more correct and complete class- itication oi an aeatns irom violence. "In tho i-oiu nf the citv of Memphis. a mntrnvcmv has arisen with reference to the unenviable homicide record of that city, but the experience of 1912 again confirms the accuracy of previous inves tigations, that the Memphis homicide rate is unquestionably the highest for any locality in the United States. It is ramuH and nf course with some force. that the rate is unduly increased by the murder ot persons wno resicie wiiuin n reasonable distance of Memphis, in most, if not all of which, territory total pro hibition prevails." . .The average homicide rate , for Italy tnr tha flv vprn andintr with 1010 was 3.9 per 100,000 of population; London's average was l.ui, ana lor me aeeaae end ing with 1910 the rate in Prussia was 2il.

NEW YORK USES NATURAL GOS. Eight and One-half Billion Cubic Feet Produced from Wells in 1912. The year 1912 surpassed all previous years in the quantity and value of nat ural gas produced in New York, while large volumes were also imported from Pennsylvania. The total quantity of gas produced in New York in 1912 is estimated by E. W. Parker, of the United States geo logical survey, at 8,625,079,000 cubic feet, valued at $2,343,379. On the other hand, the consumption of gas in New York during the year was 16,927,598,000 cubic feet, valued at $4,866,821, an aver age price of 23.75 cents a thousand cubic feet. Late in 1911 an excitement was creat ed by the discovery of gas in the neigh borhood of Orchard Park, where at a depth of 1,623 to 1,675 feet gas wells with a pressure of 250 to C25 pounds were brought in. Several companies were organized to exploit this territory, with most encouraging results. During the year 1912 out of a total of 78 wells completed in Erie county only 11 were dry holes. These gas wells range in depth from 1,800 to 1,900 feet and have a rock pressure of 135 to 950 pounds. These new wells have materially in creased the gas production of the state. The larger proportion of the gas con sumed in New York is consumed for domestic purposes, the estimated amount so used being v 15,329,811,000 cubic feet, valued at $4,583,414, an average price of 29.90 cents a thousand cubic feet, val ued at $283,407, was consumed in the in dustries. ' The differences between the value of the gas consumed in New York and the value of gas produced in New York, which in 1912 amounted to $2,523,422, represents the amount received for gas piped into this state from Pennsylvania.

ARKANSAS PRODUCES $6,258,726 IN MINERALS State Leads in the Production of Alumi num Ore and of Oilstone ' Material. Arkansas is first among the states in the production of two minerals, bauxite and novnculite, the former being the ore of aluminum and the latter the source of the larger part of the oilstones pro A,itmA in iha TTnirjd States. The nrin- cipal mineral product of the state, how ever, is coal, the annual value of which constitutes over 50 per cent of the total. The total value of the mineral products of Arkansas in 1912 was $6,258,726, against $5,864,822 in 1911, according to Edward W. Parker, of the United States Geological Survey. The coal production was 2,100.819 short tons, valuert at 682,789, in 1912, against 2,106.789 tons, valued at $3,396,849. in 1911. The coals of Arkansas are generally of high grade, particularly in the eastern part of the field, where they approach anthracite in character. The semi-anthracite of Ar kansas is an excellent domestic fuel, reaching markets as far north as Kansas Liiv. itiining conuiuurw . nu r.tnujt, however, and the cost of labor high. Moreover, competition with the petro leum and natural gas awl with the more r. . Fx . Til: -: I cheaply minea coai irom uumm nu bama on the east and with Colorado and New Mexico coals on thfi-wst has kept the coal-mining industry of Arkansas practically at a standstill for the last 10 years. Bauxite is second among the mineral nroducts of the state. In 1912 the stone quarries of Arkansas furnished products valued at $3l3,s,exciuaive oi novacu lite and of limestone burned for lime. In 1911 the quarry products were val ued at $526,352. The clay-working in dustries, while not highly developed, take fourth place in the value of the output. In 1912 the clay products of Arkansas, about 75 Per cent of which consists of common brick, were valued at $462,603, and the sand and gravel pits yielded $303,639. - The only metalliferous prod ucts of Arkansas are lead, line, and manganiferous ores, and of these, sine contributes more than $100,000 to the total value. Other commercial products are fuller's earth, lime, mineral waters, natural gas, phosphate rock, and slate. Some diamonds are found in Tike coun ty. . Chosen W. C. T. U. toad for 13th Time.

BODY EXUBERANT VERBOSITY. Medical Journal Makes Sport at Expense of Lawyers. The medical profession is perennially accused of lack of clarity of expression in dealing with medical subjects. In the accusation there is a certain amount o justice, but the critics forget that tnany scientific subjects, especially those of a technical nature, cannot easily be dealt with in the language of the street. Nev. ertheless, the charge that we are not clear and direct in our method of ex pression, says The Journal of the Ameri can Medical Association, makes us sad That is, until we happen to get hold of a piece of composition' written in legal phraseology. Then by comparison the most turbid of medical expressions be come clear. These facts are suggested by reading a charge made by a grand jury against a physician who had ren dered a bill against the county for more than was due him. Briefly, the doctor had claimed to vaccine 27 more persons than he actually had vaccinated, and thus obtained from the county $27 which did not belong to him. The misdemean or was not an involved one but the grand jury stated it thus: "John Doe, on the fourth day of March, in the year of our Lord one thousand nine hundred and twelve, in the county aforesaid, with force and arms did un lawfully, by using deceitful means, art ful practices, defraud and cheat the coun ty of in the state of out of the sum of $27. And as though this charge were not sufficiently overwhelming, the grand jury goes into details regarding this misde meanor thus: "The said John Doe then and there represented to said board of commis sioners that he vaccinated the above named persons and the said board then and there paid the said Jolm Doe one dollar each for the above-named persons, and said payment was made upon said representation, and said representation so made by the said Doe that he vac cinated the above-named persons was false, and made by the said Doe for the purpose of cheating and defrauding the said county of and said board of commissioners of roads and revenues of said county out of the sum of twenty seven dollars, and because of said false representation said county of ' was cheated and defrauded by the said John Doe out of said sum of money, contrary to the laws of said state, good order, peace and dignity thereof." A noted English statesman, long since dead, once accused bis political opponent on the floor of the House of Commons of being "intoxicated with the exuber ance of his own verbosity." A study of legal phraseology leads the layman to wonder if this ia not a species of in toxication indulged in by those who are submerged in an otherwise dry subject. If so," a new field of investigation may be opened up. A study of the pathology of the verbal "jag" might throw some light on this obscure subject. Twenty Years with an Unselfish Husband. The American Magazine has been of fering prizes for the best letters entitled, "What I Am Most Thankful For." The following contribution from a woman who is thankful for 20 years spent with an unselfish husband won third prize, and appears with the other prize win ning letters in the November issue: "What I am most thankful for, un questionably; is for 20 years of married life with an unselfish man; a quiet, stu dious, witty man that children and dogs love and understand. "A man that gave up his college ca reer that he might help his parents and give his young brother a chance. "A man who to-dav supports his old mother in her own home, so that she can still feel independentinstead of in his home, where the expense would be less. "A man who has honor and duty writ ten in his soul, where they always re main, so that he does not need to carry 'a rabbit's foot for luck.' "A man who twice has had money that represented years of saving swept away in a few weeks swept away through a supposed friend; but honor called for him 'to stand to the "guns, and be did not flinch. It is easy enough to be pleasant When Life flows along like a song, But the man worth while is the one who can smile When everything goes dead wrong. "This man has worked much harder than many men. He has not complained, has kept cheerful, brave, noble through it all. David lirsyson would like to know him. "He has pity for mankind, as they know not how to live, for the good in life. Pity for the downtrodden and crim inals, and looks forward to the time when the 'Old World' will be better through evolution and education. "It is a test of character when one has to watch money so as to make every dollar count to best advantage to re main generous still and keep from be coming stingy. (Pardoname, for I know. I have tried to stand 'shoulder to shoul der' with this man, and for me it was a fight to keep generous.) "We both wanted to do great deeds, biff, wonderful things in this life, but have learned to give one's self, in the thousand and one little deeds of every day that count for comfort and happi ness to others. "Kor instance: Business takes this husband of mine many miles away to a country town where in the spring he can gather large bnskets of trailing ar butus. We give this to the sick and aged. We especially try to find people that knew and loved thif dainty blossom in their childhood. Later the field dais ies come, and we use them; but, best of all, for friends and neighbors this man brings fresh eggs, butter and fruit. No charge is made for time or trouble, but there is deep satisfaction in being able to help others, even ever so little. "Iitelv, I read of a man who said he had lived 18 years of happy married life.

Seeing his friend refuse the cigar, the boat in astonishment exclaimed: "What! not smoking t Why my dear fellow, vou lose half your dinner!" "Yes."

Nig Elp; GLASS OVEN DOORS Cooking Always in Sight GAS ATTACHMENTS For Instant Use The N. D. PHELPS CO. OFF FOR VERMONT. Lumber Ccracern Which Has Finished in New York. A fine illustration of the way the big lumber companies sweep over forest re gions, and, having cut the timber, leave the country to its fate, is shown in the application before the up-state public service commission . by ' the Cranberry lake railroad company to surrender its charter and abandon its route. This railroad is sir miles long and reaches from Benson's mines on the New York Central's line in St. Lawrence county to Wanakena. Wanakena is a village built up by the Rich lumber com pany 10 or a dor-en years ago. The com pany had a tract of 17,000 acres there, and built a saw-mill, houses for its em ployes, a store and secured a pout office and an express office. A church natural ly followed, and there is a hotel and a school at Wanakena. Now the company has cleared its lumber tract, and wants to get out. It has secured another tract in the mountains above Manchester, Vt., has already taken down some houses of its employes and shipped them to Ver mont, where it pronoHca to skin another great tract of trees, and dry up sources of the Otter Creek and Battenkill river as well, as to disfigure the region about a beautiful and favorite mountain re sort. Naturally it has no more use for its Cranberry lake railroad and wants to es cape thu responsibility for its operation by surrendering tne charter, mat lasi is a new question for the public service commission. But it ought to be clear that railroad ' charters are not granted solely for the convenience of the capital ists, but that capitalists securing them assume responsibilities toward the peo ple who follow in the wake of the rail road, which they camiot shake off as easily as they can tear down a saw mill and ship it to some new lorest reserve. It is extremely doubtful whether the peoplo of Vermont can protect their (ireen mountains from the spoliation which this company proposes. But the devastation which it intends to work will overbalance all that that state has been trying to do for half a dozen years back to increase its forests. ' Vermont now has a forestry comminioner, a law to encourage the planting of forests by remitting taxation, and to guard against forest fire. This lumber company will sweep away in two years more forest j man tne stare can grow m zu, ana ior its destruction there is no repair save the slow . process of nature.

Its .constant pnr--pose is to enlighten and inform its readers. It has its own views on public questions and is not afraid to advocate them, but it considers that the primary function of the newspaper is to present the facts which will enable the people to reach their own conclusions. In this spirit and with, this object The Republican's editorial page as well as its news columns are conducted. THE REPUBLICAN'S NEWS SERVICE is prompt, thorough, pains taking. It spends lavishly for the news of its own field and it commands the best agencies for the getieral news of this and other countries. It employs able special correspondents at Boston and Washington. Its sport ing news pages are particularly strong and attractive. It presents its news with intelligence, discrimination and art. THE MAGAZINE PAGE is one of the distinctive features of The Daily Republican, appealing especially to all who are interested in liter ature and the arts, but embracing as well a wide variety of entertaining reading. THE SUNDAY REPUBLICAN grows each year fuller in volume and richer in diverting, instructive and helpful features.
