fiuml),rul Rules fur the Gamr.
IJiiIps f ro'f, with rulings and in
1ei pn tat ions, adopted recently by the
I'niiel States (o.lf association have
been published. A revision of the old
order of tilings was made with a view
ft simpliticat ion. but from the facts
that mi less than .'57 rules now con
front gi ifers as regards match play,
10 relate to medal play and V2 are de
voted to three-ball matches, there
does not seem to have been much
boiling down. As it is now the cardi
nal rides which should be observed
by players are:
. A s.t rcke apart from the tee is
any movement of the ball caused by
the player or any downward move
ment of the club made with the in
tention of striking the ball.
Any vessel, wheelbarrow, tool, rol
ler, grass cutter, box or similar ol
;,t ruction may be removed. If a ball
be removed in so doing it may be re
placed without penalty. A ball lying
on or touching such obstruction, or
on clothes, nets, or opened for the
piirjHse of upkeep of the links may be
lifted and dropped without penalty
as near as possible to the place where
it lay, but not nearer the hole. A ball
lifted in a hazard, under such circum
stances, shall be dropped In the haz
ard. A ball lying in a golf hole- op flag
hole made by the green keeper may
be lifted and cropped without penal
ty as near as possible to tile place
where it lay, but not nearer the hole,

Killing of the United States Golfing

shall mean within a club's length. If
a ball lie on or in within a, club's
length of a drain, water pipe or hy
drant, it may be lifted and dropped
without penalty as near as possible, to
the place where it lay, but not nearer
Hefore striking at a ball the "player
shall not move, bend or break any
thing fixed or growing "within a
club's length of the ball." etc.
A player or caddie shall not "press
down or remove any irregularities of
surface near a ball in play.
If the water, in a recognized water
hazai overflow- its usual boundaries
the overflowed portion of the course
shall be considered as part of the

Among the special rules governing
stroke competition are:
If a competitor' play from outside
the. limits of the teeing ground ,the
penalty shall be disqualification. .
When a competitor's ball is within
20 yards of the hole the competitor
shall not play until the flag has been
removed, under penalty of one stroke;
when both balls are on the putting
green, if the player's ball strike his
opponent's ball the penalty shall be
one stroke. The ball nearer the hole
shall, on request of the player, be
either lifted or holed out at the op
tion of the owner, under penalty of
his disqualification. Through .the
green a competitor may have any
other competitor's ball lifted, if he
finds that it interferes with his
stroke. Each competitor may have a
fore-caddie, but may not receive ad

POWER IS COSTLY
Reason so Much Interest is Mani
fested in Harnessing the.
SCHEME FOR UPPER MISSISSIPPI
aiuscallno Considering a Plan; to
Build a Fourteen-Mile
The. growing importance of water
power in the industrial world is being
more and more appreciated and in
America especially, where there is
untold energy going to waste and
where recent advances in the price of
fuel' have greatly increased the cost
of steam power, practical manufac
turers are growing more and more
ready to lend their support to exten
sive plans for harnessing the streams.
The situation on the upper Mississippi
and the possibilities that lie locked
in the surging Father of Waters are
referred to in a recent letter, of Wil
liam K. Curtis to the Chicago Kecord
llerald. Mr. Curtis makes reference
to the plans of Col. W. L. Lusk, of
this city, with reference to damming
the river at Keokuk, where about 50,
000 horsepower can be developed, and
"Kngineers who have studied the t
proposition consider it not only f easi-
ule. hut as promising great advantages
to all that section of the country.
They not only recommend but predict
the construction of other dams -up
and 'down the river for similar pur
poses in the future; one which will
perform a like service, furnishing
water power and navigation between
Hock Island and Clinton, another be
low Prescott to create deep water be
tween St. Paul and Lake Pepin, until
the entire upper Mississippi is har
nessed to electric plants and distrib
uting its mighty power over wires
through the states which lie upon its
banks. Surely this is not an improba
ble scheme, and Col. Lusk and his as
sistant engineers have already recom
mended it to congre.-s. 'H ,'
I French Plan.
"It is the French plan, and FYance
offers the best example for the devel
opment of internal waterways. Hy the
canalization of her rivers and connect
ing them she has secured an interior
water transportation system of over
7.1MX) miles, one-third the mileage of
her railways. The area of France is
about 200.00O square miles, a little less
than that of Wisconsin, Minnesota,
Iowa and Illinois combined the four
states to be directly affected by the
improvement of the upper Mississippi
and each of these states has sever
al cntributing streams no larger
than those which now form a part of
the French waterway system. In fact,
engineers who have studied both
situations assert that the canaliza
tion of the tributaries of the northern
Mississippi will cost very much less
than $-'Ot).K).tMK which "the French
government has spent for a similar
purpose. The traffic of the French
canals is about one-third of that of its
railways, and consists mostly of coal,
iron and other bulky merchandise.
Xor has the development of the sys
tem affected the railways unfavor
ably. On the contrary, the increase
of business has been as much as they
could handle, and. but for the assist
ance of the canals, there there would
have been frequent embarrassing
Proposition at Btimeatlne.
An enterprise that has long en
gaged the attention of the Muscatine
business men and manufacturers is
a power canal from Moscow to that
city, which, if constructed, would be
14 miles in length and would give sev
eral thousand horsepower. A survey
of the proposed route was recentlv
begun bv Thomas Downer, a civil en
gineer, who is understood to be in the
employ of eastern capitalists who are
investigating the feasibility of the
project. It will require no small out
lay of capital even to make the pre
liminary survey, plans, etc., and it has
been for the lack of this amount that
the desired interest was not secured
in the proposition years ago.
The idea of the Moscow canal was
probably originated before half of the
present population of Muscatine was
born. Briefly, it is a plan to cut a
canal from the Cedar river at Moscow
to Muscatine. It is said that skilled
engineers are authority for the state
ment that the scheme is practical, and
that the only problem to the proposi
tion is its size. It is estimated that
the waterfall will be sufficient to fur
nish power for every industry now in
Muscatine and manv more. -
The Genuine vs. Counterfeit
The genuine is always better than
a counterfeit, but the truth of this
statement is never more forcibly re
alized or more thoroughly apprecia
ted than when you compare the gen
nine DeWitt's Witch Hazel Solve with
the manv counterfeits and worthless
substitutes that are on the market
W. S. Ledbetter, of Shreveport, La.,
says: "After using numerous other
remedies without benefit, one box of
DeWitt's Witch Hazel Salve cured
me." For blind, bleeding, itching and
protruding piles no remedy is equal to
