An Unknown Fnend : By JOHN N. LARNED I was pretty well fixed when I was married, and the future looked Invit ing. But I had a failing at least my wife called It a faillng-l couldn't stand -' to see any one suffer, I indorsed a note " for a friend to sure him from bank ruptcy and loaned others money, not couuting'on the fact that I would need what 1 put out, and if I didn't have it I would come to grief myself. And so I did. One day I received a letter from a manufacturer of automobiles that he wished for an agent in my city. My , pay would be a salary of $1,500 a year ' and a commission on every machine I old. Who the man was- or why he wished me for bis agent I didn't know and didn't stop to inquire. I accepted the position at once. ....... Rathbone was the name of the head of the automobile company. Soon after - being settled In the business I wrote him, asking how he came to choose me as an agent, but received no reply. The . letter that came from the factory was dictated by the superintendent of the sales department, and I was not sure that Mr. Rathbone had ever seen my , letter, or, if he had, whether he had found time to' reply to my question. I sold a good many of his autos and was making money when another windfall came to me that surprised me more than the first Mr. Rathbone's auto works were in corporated, and one morning I received a registered letter which, on opening, I found to contain a certificate for a thousand shares of the new company made out in my name. I was never in my life so dumfou tided. Then it occurred to me that as an employee of the concern I was expected to stib - scribe for the stoek. Though I had laid up some funds, I had not enough to pay for the stock. While I was wondering what it all meant one of my employers called my attention to a newspaper item mentioning the organisation of the manufacturing company for which I was agent at shares of $20 each. The par value of my stock was $20,000, and the item . further stated that there had been sales at 120. I wrote at once to ask If the stock had been sent me as subscribed stock and on what terms I would be ex pected to pay for it A formal reply from the treasurer of the company came to me that the thousand shares stood in my name on the company's books full paid. When I told my wife about the mat ter she said thajf the stock had been placed in my name to serve some pur pose connected with the organization of the company and I would find out in time that I didn't own it -1 wrote several letters to the main of&ee about it, but they were not answered. My wife was fearful that if any financial breakdown occurred to the company we would be in as bad a fix as before I was offered the agency. I resolved to let the matter drop and await de velopments. When the first quarterly dividends were declared I received a check for $1,000. I looked at it in amazement, then, showing it to my wife, remarked that if this was ruin I wished I might keep on being ruined in the same way as long as I lived. ,At this rate my stock was paying me $4,000 a year. It didn't seem worth while to write for an explanation, for no snch letters had been accorded an answer. My wife still feared that I was being used as a dummy to put through some financial scheme, but dummies don't usually receive checks for hard money. They are not the basket of the balloon, bnt the gas bag. I didn't put any faith in this interpretation. Since I could get no information I determined to leave my business in charge of my demonstrator, go to the ofHce of the company and find out for myself what was at the bottom of my good fortune. I carried out my resolution and one ' day walked into the office of the manu facturer. I was obliged to send in my card to the president and received a re ply to call at his home that evening. . When I presented myself there, after being admitted, an elderly woman came in to receive me and said; "My husband has asked me to say that be is under a great obligation to you, which he is endeavoring to repay. But it Is in your power to do him a great injury. He suggests that you re turn to your home and accept the ben efits he has bestowed upon you and those he intends to bestow, asking no questions." "And he will not see me?" "He prefers not" "May I ask whyT "Because you may recognize him." ' '"And if I do?" "I can answer no more questions. I will say this, however I consider my husband overtimid about the matter." "I cannot conceive why I should In jure one who has so befriended me." She remained silent, and I withdrew. I returned to my home and within a week recelverT a certificate for another thousand shares of stock. One night while lying awake mem Dry brought me a possible explanation. When a youngster, some fifteen years before, while hunting I started from bushes a man wearing Htrlpes. He begged me not to betray him. Instead f doing so I secured ordinary clothes for hiiu, which be put on and went his way. I never her.rd from him. I do not doubt that this man became successful nd was my benefactor. After think ing the matter over I decided to respect his wishes and never again tried to see kirn.

NEW HAVEN PLANAGREEDON Railroad Willing to Accept the Requirements , Stipulated BOSTON & MAINE 'IS TO BE SOLD Trustees Are to Be Appoint ed for the Trolley Lines of the New Haven Washington, D. C, March 23. After several weeks of negotiations, the United States department of justice and the New lork, New Haven & Jlarttord raih road Saturday night announced tha they had reached a complete agreement tor a dissolution of the New .Haven, The announcement was made in the fol- lowing terms: "The attorney general has Indicated to the representatives of the New loik. .New Haven & Harford railroad the ar rangements which he thinks would ra suit in bringing the affairs of that com pany into harmony with the law. The representatives of the railroad are will ing to accept the requirements indicat ed and to endeavor to put them into ci feet without delay if approved by the stockholders in a meeting to be called at , Once. The indicated arrangements. stated in general terms, follow: "1. The Boston Railroad Holding com. panv is a Massachusetts corporation holding a majority of the stock of the Boston & Maine railroad, and 90 per cent of the formers stork, in turn, is owned by the New Haven railroad. The charter of the holding company prohibits it from disposing of the Boston & Maine stock, j. he legislature ot Massachusetts will bo asked to remove this prohibi tion and, if this is done, the stock of the holding company will be transferred at once to five trustees and, after ar rangements have been made to protec the minority stock of the holding com pany, they shall sell the Boston & Maine stock, prior to January 1, 1917. ,"2. The stock of the companies which control trie Connecticut and Rhode 18' land trollies will be placed in the hands of trustees hve for each state and shall be sold within five years from July 1, 1914. "3. The majority stock of the Mer chants & Miners' Transportation com pany, now held by the New Haven rail road, will be placed in the hands of three trustees and shall be sold within three years from July 1, 1914. "4. The minority stock in the East ern Steamship corporation held by the New Haven railroad shall be sold within three years from July 1, 1914, and in the meantime shall be deprived of vot ing power. - "5. Whether the New naven railroad shall be permitted to retain the sound lines will be submitted to the interstate commerce commission for determination under the provisions of the Panama ca nal act. "6. The Berkshire trollies shall be sold within five years from July 1, 1914. "7. A decree embodying the foregoing shall be entered jn the United states district court for the southern district of New York. The decree shall further provide that upon application of the New Haven railroad for the trustees and for good cause shown, the time within which any of the above-mentioned stock shall be sold may be extended by the court. "Trustees satisfactory to all parties have been suggested. Those proposed in connection with the Boston & Maine stock have signified their willingness to serve and their names are: .Marcus P. Knowlton and James L. Doherty of Springfield, .lames L. Ktchards and (Carles P. Hall of Boston, and Frank P. Carpenter of Manchester, X. II. Names of the others will not be made public until acceptance by them is fully assured. "The essential reason for placing the property in the hands of trustees is to secure their immediate independent man agements. The outlines of the proposed decree and trust agreements have been discussed and are understood. Their verbiage remains to be worked out, but no difficulty is anticipated in that re spect. This statement has the approval of both the attorney general and the representatives of the railroad." McReynolds' Second Big Victory. Saturday night's agreement marks the second victory which Attorney General McKevnoIds has won In his effort to have "big business" adjust itself to the Sherman anti-trust law without litiga tion. The complexities in untangling the New Haven were said to be vastly greater than in any previous negotia tions of the kind, and tha process has taken months of careful work by the lawyers representing both sides. the announcement was mane that within the last few hours the New Ha ven was granted certain concessions for which it made a strenuous fight. The length of the trusteeship for the Boston & Maine stock owned by the New Ha ven was held to be one such concession; the decision to leave the disposition of the so-called sound lines of the New Ha ven to the interstate, commerce commis sion another. The department, however, it was point ed out, has arrived at a definite under standing for the dissolution of an al leged monopoly, which has been under fire and under investigation for years, and which was once in the courts as a violator of the Sherman act, but which never before has been brought to the point where such demands were made upon it and accepted. The negotiatiotB here were conducted by T. W. Gregory, special assistant to the attorney general: Jesse C. Adkins, assistant attorney general; F. M. Swack er. expert of the interstate commerce commission, representing Urn govern ment; Moorfield Storey. Walker Hines and John W. II. (.'rim, represent ing the New Haven. Both Mr. McKeynolds and Chairman Klliott participated from time to time in the conferences. Before the announcement was made public Satur day night the attorney general had a talk with President Wilson, and it was understood outlined to him the plan, which later was ratified.

England and particularly those affecting the transportation lines were sucii tnat it seemed wiser to make a settlement if possible rather than face a general dis solution suit with all of its ramifications and uncertainitics. New England needs peace and a chance for constructive work. If that condition could be obtained by an amicable adjustment, under which ample time was allowed for the protec tion of the company's property, the di rectors felt that such adjustment would be helpful to New England and to the stockholders of the company. . "The directors feel that the time al lowed with the right in the court to ex tend it upon application of the company, or of the liquidators, gives an oppor tunity for disposing of the various prop erties, to the best advantage possible, and with the least disturbance to gen eral business conditions. The depart ment was told of the great importance of ample time and of good trustees, and met this view as to these two important points, me financial conditions con fronting the company are most difficult, but it is hoped that this adjustment with the government increases the prob ability of handling the matter success fully and this very vital question will be taken in, hand by the directors at once. . - "The directors have felt that the dis position of these properties was a trans action of such importance that the stock holders must fuss upon it, to which the department has assented. A meet ing will be called in the very near fu ture for that purpose. Prior to that meeting a statement will be submitted to each stockholder outlining the situa tion. Business, particularly that of transportation in New England, needs help and co-operation from the people, governmental agencies, state anq na tional, and the pres, and a chance to go ahead. It is hoped that this adjust ment with the government will prove to be an important and desirable step in that direction. FULL ARMY STRENGTH VOTED IN SENATE Committee Adds $7,565,000 to Appropria tions as Asked By Secretary Garrison. Washington, D. C, March 23. The Senate committee on military affairs 'added IT.SCfyOOQ to the appropriations carried in the array bill as it passed the House. The total of the appropria tions carried by the bill a it was re ported to the Senate late Saturday aft ernoon was $101,755,583. ' " The increases were made on the rec oramendation of Secretary Garrison and are intended to bring the army up to its full strength and efficiency. The Senate increased the appropriation for the pay of enlisted men $1,z2I,7j8, for airships $50,0(10, for officers of the. line $89,100, for hospital corps $47,28 and for subsistence $0H2,47i). The committee authorized an appro. priation of $135,000 for extension and betterments of the Washington-Alaska military cable telegraph system. Of the total sum of $300,000 available for the purchase of airships $50,000 was made available immediately. The committee authorized an increase of $130,800 in the appropriation for the Porto Kiran regiments. Ihe bill -authorizes the president, at his discretion, to award suitable medals to officers and enlisted men who have participated in exceptional and notable battles subsequent to 1800, or who may hereafter take part in such engagements. The president is authorized to designate the battles upon the recommendation of officers, to be approved by the secretary of war. , The Senate committee struck from the bill the proviso put in by the House as follows: "That hereafter any retired officer of the army who shall act as, or be, the representative, agent or employe of any firm, company, corporation or individual ngaged in manufacturing for or selling to the government any article or articles either directly or indirectly, shall re ceive no part of the pay of a retired offi cer. The committee" also struck out another House proviso, which has attracted much attention and comment i That no part of the appropriation for horses for the cavalry, artillery or engineers should be expended "for defraying expenses of offi cers, enlisted men or horses in attend ing or taking part in horse shows." If this had been retained it would have prevented the appearance of army horsemen at the New York and other horse shows. TO CARRY PRODUCE DIRECT TO CONSUMER Parcel Post Will Be Used in Fresh At tack on the High Cost of Living. Ten Cities Have Been Selected. Washington, II. C, March 23. Prelim inary steps were taken by the pnatotfice department yesterday to perfect plans reducing the cost of living by having the parcel post carry farm produces directly to the consumer's, door. Ten cities were selected to begin the work of establishing direct connections between the producer and consumer. . Boston ami Lynn postmasters were directed to receive the names of persons willing to supply farm products in re- tail quantities by parcel post. REVENGE WAS HER MOTIVE Mme. Caillaux Tells Why She Shot and Killed Gaston Calmette WITNESS SOBBED VERY FREQUENTLY As She Related Story of the Tragedy to French Court Paris. March 23. Mme. Hcnriette Caillaux Saturday told in court why she shot and killed Gaston Calmette, editor of the Fifaro. The police had taken elaborate precautions to prevent a recurrence of the disorder which at tended the funeral of Calmette Friday, but they were unnecessary. J he woman was taken from the jail to the Palace of Justice in a closed tax icab, preceded and followed by axjeabs filled with detectives. She wore a black dress and hat. When she entered the court she hid her face ith a large fur muff. Mme. Cailluiix's testimony was given in a low voice and frequently interrupted by outbursts of . sobbing. She whs wrought up, she began, by the hostility against her husband, which newt-paper attacks had created, and felt keenlv the aversion which she noticed at every re ception or public, meeting she ami her iuslianri attended. "For two year," said Mine Cflillaux, an abominable campaign was directed against my husband, who was attacked on every occasion, notably on the charge that-he had secretly 'ceded a portion of the French Congo to Germany and in connection with the Agadir incident in Morocco. I always took great interest in the public life, of my husband, sharing the pleasures and cares of politics, and I " wa,s deeply grieved by these calumnies.' Aside from her emotion in the court room, Mme. Caillaux has shown no in dication of being morbid or depressed and the sharp watchfulness of the prison wardens and attendants, called forth by rumors of the prisoner's intentiou to commit suicide, has now been helaxed. Her apartments in the Saint Lam re prison consist of a bedroom, a dining room and a workroom, three adjoining cells. Saturday thev were filled with flowers, baskets of fruit and books. She passed the greater part of the day sort ing the cards of those who called at the prison and answering - letter she had received, as well as going over the news paper accounts' and talking with her husband, formerly minister of finance. and her little daughter. FINANCES IN PARIS IN A CHAOTIC STATE All Banks of the French Capital in Nego tiations, It Has Been Re ported. Paris, March 23. A well known au thority on French finance says that the situation in financial as well as political circles here is chaotic and that he is pessimistic about conditions, although he does not., fear any big crash is im mineut. Ail the bunks in Paris, he said, are ir some unhealthy negotiation and much money is bound to be lost. All the cash available is short time money and it is impossible to obtain large loans for long period. He instanced the Brazil Railroad company as one of those most likelv to Vie in difficulties and to meet with heavy losses. According to this authority the ap proacliing general election may help to improve the situation. Me blamed the banks for issuing secnriti2 during the recent good times without exercising proper care for the sake of big profits. The financial writer for one of the big dailies said he had heard rumors that several important banks are in difficul ties. All have been gorged, he said, with Balkan treasury notes, but the Servian loan has eased the situation. One section of the Socialists place the blame for the situation on the crush ing burden of military expenses in con nection with the three-year service, but the cause must be sought further back. The budgets have been hnanially un sound for years. legislation for elec tioneering purposes, such as the pur chase of the Western railway and old age pensions caused the cpenses to ex ceed by fajr the original estimates. The finance ministers did not face the deficit, but filled the hole by digging another. Trade depression, he went on, is only at its beginning. Frnce has enormous capital invested in South America which may ultimately prove profitable only on the condition that cheap money will al low things to be kept going. He referred to Brazil, especially its railroads, as the danger spot. All confidence seems to have been lost and the people seem to think that no safe place for the invest ment of their money exists. Even the best American railroads have lost their reputations? Much money lias tieen invested in elec tric securities, which is a new form of investment in France, and there is need of cheap money to keep the thing going. Germany's attitude is causing uneasi ness. The general election may give France a (.'humber which will inspire con- I ence. Tor at present, ne said, tne teel- imr is treneral that "It cannot hist, with out anyboilv really knowing what he means by it. MORE OUTRAGES IN CHINA.

When the average American reads that the Panama canal is completed and is now about ready for the formal open ing to the world's commerce, he still wonders at the enormity of the task of building it. No printed description can tell the full story of the great construc tion. However, Lyman H. Howe will present at the opera house on Friday, March 27, an animated record of Uncle Sam's great achievement which will fully enlighten every curious citizen. The film reproduces every interesting phase of the canal zone activity. Under the masterful editing of the Howe organisa tion, the principal incidents of nearly 10 years of photographic vigil at the Panama canal have been put into their natural sequence and will be presented with a degree of realism and perfection that is amazing. It required several hundred kinds of apparatus to create the mechanical "effects" which enliven the reproduction. Mr. Howe has many other attractive features in his new program. There is a striking contrast of the scenic grand eur of the Montana canyon of the United States with the St. Gothard mountain, which is between Italy and Switzerland. The traveler has reproduced two master pieces of natural beauty from opposite sides of the world. The spectator in a comfortable theatre seat mav now com pare these two world-known picturesque points. The American views were made from a "flat"' car attached to the end of the famous cross-the-continent "Olym pian" train. Advt. "Peg 0' My Heart." "Peg ()' My Heart,'! the most delight ful comedy the American stage lias known in many years, will be the at traction at the opera house Saturday, March 2o, matinee and night, lhis is the .1. Hartley Manners play in which Miss Laurctte. Taylor made such a ter rible hit at the Coit theatre, New York, that she is now rounding out her second yeur of an uninterrupted run there with a capacity record so far. It is consid ered one of the marvels of present day thestricals. Oliver Morosco, the producer, has chosen' Miss 'Marion Dentler, a winsome little actress of unusual ability, to play the role of Peg in the company which is to lie seen here. He has surrounded her with a cast which rivals that now playing in New York. "Peg O' My Heart." with its sweetness and quaint humor, is an attraction that endures in the mind as the happiesst of mem ories. It is a p'ay for all classes and the young enjoy it just ss much as the grown-ups. There is only one "Peg O' Mv Heart" and it will be vears and years before this comedy will have a rival wortliv ot the name. -Advt. Candy and Box Makers' Wages. The New York Factory Investigating commission, whicti since early tall lias been studying wages in confectionery, paper-box, and shirt making, and the department stores, presented a report to the legislature on February 16. Cover ing onlv the confectionery and paper- box industries, it represented wage sta tistics for UOy.sHI people. 1 he report shows that in the confec tionery factories more than half of the men receive less than $10 a week and half of the women receive less than .6 week. More than two-thirds of the pills below 18 receive less thun $5.3(1, and of the women above that age more than half receive $7 or less. In paper box making, the majority of women workers receive less man o.au a week and about half of those over 18 years of age receive less than 6 a week. Senator Wagner, cliairman oi tne com mission is quoted as saying: "Xo man can live properly and be self-sustaining on a wage ot or o or a week. Yet we find thousands of women receiv ing those amounts. It is clear that something must lie done to remedy this situntion." The Survey. The Prodigals.

Good Cheese Recipes. ' Cheese has always been considered a somewhat taxing article of diet suitable only for the fortunate possessors of vig orous digestions. But this popular idea seems to be unfounded, for listen to what one of Uncle. Sam's experts in trition says of this article of food: It seems to lie the general opinion that the body expends more labor in assim ilating cheese than is required for other comparable foods. In , reality it is as easily digested as meat amf has about twice its muscle-making value. An ounce of cheese is equivalent to one egg, a glass of milk, or two ounces of meat, and because of the economic possibil ities in its substitution for meat the wise housekeeper will find it advan tageous in these days of high prices to use freely this neglected food staple. The reason it is not more commonly used in this country iaprol)ably due, for one thing, to a matter of habit, which makes the meal seem incomplete unless it includes meat, and for a second reason to the fact that housewives, through luck of experience, are much less skillful in the arrangement of bills of fare in which cheese is the central food than thev are in the arrangement of menus where meat is thus used. In order that the diet !uay be well balanced, cheese, if used in quantity, should replace foods of similar comjiosi- tion rather than supplelitent them. The builder who has a choice of materials must have a knowledge of their rela tive properties if he wishes to use stone instead of brick, or wood in place of iron. Jt is the same with tne house keeper who wishes to use her available food supply intelligently, and whose choice of foods is influenced by their relative cost at a given time or season. In planning meals, therefore, of which cheese dishes are the chief features, housekeepers should take care to dimin ish other fat foods in order tl at the meals may not be unduly hearty. W ith a cheese dish as the central fea ture of the meal it is wise to suptily crisp, watery .vegetables, watercns, elerv. lettuce served with a dressm r or with salt alone, or simple fruit sal ads, and preference should be given re freshing fruits rather than what are known as heavy desserts. Then, too, whether raw or cooked, cheese is likely to be somewhat soft, and so it seems to call for the harder kinds of bread, such as crusty rolls, zweiback, rye bread, harder brown breads, crackers, and the like, or cereal breakfast foods. Some housewives complain of the dif ficulty they have in keeping cheese. One of the best ways to keep it after it has been cut is to wrap it in a slightly dampened cloth and then in paper, and to keep it in a cool place. To dampen the cloth, sprinkle it and then wring it; it should seem hardly damp to the touch. Paraffine paper may be used in place of the cloth. hen cheese Is put in a covered dish the air should never be wholly excluded, for if this is done it molds more readily. The small, whole cheeses muv lie kept satisfactorily by cutting a slice from the top to serve as a cover and removing the cheese as need ed with a knife or cheese stoop. The (jneesc neiow me cover snoum oe Kepi wrapped in a eioui. In preparing cheese it will be found in most instances more convenient to use a coarse grater having slits instead of the usual rounded holes, for such a grater, in' spite of its name, shaves the heese instead of grating it. and when cheese is soft this is an advantage, since the grater does not get clogged. It is well to remember, too. that since cheese needs very little cooking when used in combination with onions, chives, and green peppers, which are excellent fla vorings for it., these should always be previously cooked, either by stewing in a little water, or by cooking in butter. The seeds., of course, of the peppers should lie removed before cooking. Oth er good flavors are mustard, curry pow der, onion juice, chopped olives, pimento and, according to European recipes, nut meg or mace. A large variety of roasts may be made by combining cheese and legumes, eith er beans of various kinds, cow-peas, lentils or peas. Combinations of Cheese and C heec Curd. Pishes in which cheese and cheese-curd occur in combinations suit able for dessert were once very com mon, as reference to the cook books of our mothers and the handed-down reci pes of our grandmothers will show. And as both flavor mid richness is con tributed by the cheese they are well worth adding to the preent-day menus. Boston Roast. A Boston roast is made by mashing one pound can of kid ney beans or an equivalent quantity of cooked beans and adding one-half pound of cheese, a little salt and sufficient bread crumbs to make the mixture still enough to he torined into a roll. 1 ins should be baked in a moderate oven, liasteti occasionally with butter and wa ter, anil served with a tomato sauce.

Report Issued By the Geological Survey Showing Many Exact Elevations. A recent publication of the ' United States Geographical Survey bulletin GH4 should he of considerable impor tance to engineers and surveyors. It shows the exact elevation above mean sea level of more than 1,800 points in Oklahoma as determined by spirit level ing done by the survey from 1805 to 1012, inclusive, under the direction of K. B. Marshall, chief geographer, in co operation with the territory of Okla homa, from 1005 to 1907, inclusive, and with the state in 1908, 1911, and 1912. These exact elevations have been de termined by the geological survey in connection with its topographic mapping. Their value as starting points for en gineering projects requiring their own surveys is evident. Though a large number of elevations . are shown on the topographic maps of . areas in Oklahoma published by the stir- , vcy, they are stated on the maps only to the nearest foot, whereas the bulletin gives the elevation to the thousandth of a foot and the points are so described as to be easily identified. Never Travel in Italy Without a Rops. In the April -Woman's Home Com panion a contributor gives complete di rections for a two-weeks trip in Italy showing what it costs to visit eight cities and how to take the trip comfort ably, economically and most profitably. The following extract explains why no one should travel in Italy without rope. "Let me urge the tourist not to fail to provide himself with a titout rope. a piece of clothes-line is excellent, with which to tie up the trunk which is to go into the Italian baggage car. If you do not you miss many train connections. It is a trick of the canny Italian baggage v master. When you go to check, or 'reg ister, your trunk at the railway sta tion, this crafty robber will try to stick his fingers under the lock or under the staples at the sides. Then he wil shrug his shoulders and tell yon blandly that he cannot accept the trunk for reg istration, as it is not fastened securely f nough, and if the baggageman stolo any of your effects, while enroute, the railroad would be responsible. Tha trunk must be tied with a rojie and seal ed, he will tell you. You have no time to go rope hunting. You have to buy a rojie from him. He charges you what he thinks he can make you pay. The price depends on how many minutes you still have if catch ymf train, 'f hen (he clips on a little wooden tag, where the rope is knotted, and your trunk is officially sealed. It is a very serious offense to . break this seal. "Now, then, if your trunk is roped when it reaches the hands of the boss baggageman,' he is required, at vour re quest and upon payment of two cents, to affix the olhcial seal. So, as a hist word, don't forget the rope." Recipes of Our Pioneer Mothers for the home treatment of disease were wonderfully dependable. 'i'l lie, they knew nothing of. drugs, but owed their success to the roots, herbs and barks of the field. It is interesting to note that Lvdia K.
