Ga., Oct. 11. At the Georgia home coming exercises here Governor Elect Hoke Smith delivered an address on the race question iu the south, iu which he said that the four teenth amendment to the constitution hinders the most intelligent mode of handling the subject. "Our national government." Governor Elect Smith said, -has always legislated for the Iu dians, placing around them restrictions entirely different from those applied to white men. But for the fourteenth amendment to the constitution we should follow the same plan in Georgia with reference to the negroes." Broker Suspended For Dent. CHICAGO, Oct 11. Charles H. Smith was suspended from the board of trade for nonpayment of debts. Smith was at one time a leading bro ker, having acted in the Interests of B. P. Hutchinson, better known as "Old Hutch."

Up to the present, however, the falls have undergone no change and it would indeed be a matter for regret if this noble creation of nature were to become a victim to the modern materialistic spirit of industry. A H00S1ER MO! TWO TOWNS WHERE ROCK WOOL IS MANUFACTURED. Yorktown and Alexandria Favored by Nature in Location of Mineral De posits Product Supplant ing Asbestos. Alexandria, Ind. Two cities in In diana have been singularly favored by nature in the placing of mineral deposits, giving them an absolute mo nopoly of the manufacture of rock wool and its other products, the cit ies being Yorktown and Alexandria, where comparatively large areas, cov ering a mile square in the aggregate, are underlaid with a peculiar kind of stone, largely composed of natural glass, which when fused and blown from a blast furnace produces a per fect imitation in appearance of eot ton. but absolutely non-combustible and a perfect insulator from heat, cold and electricity. It is rapidly supplanting asbestos and is useful in many more ways than that product, whose mines in Canada and Italy are rapidly being exhausted, no new deposits of asbestos stone hav ing been discovered since 1S50, The Alexandria plant recently shipped 12 car loacls to the Philippine islands for use in the cold storage plant the government built there, while its use, like asbestos, extends to the manufacture of fireproof the ater drop curtains, clothing for fire men, acid workers, lampwicks, stokers' gloves, etc. It is called by scientists both fibrous and crystalline, and is designated as a mineralogical vege table, Charlemagne is credited with the first public uses of it when he made a tablecloth which he cleaned by throwing into the fire, but its real application to commercial purposes date back only 56 years. Thirteen years ago the deposits at Alexandria and Yorktown were dis covered by scientists, since which time extensive .mills have been making the varied products into which it can be turned, and now that the stone in the Nicoson quarries, covering SO acres at Alexandria, has been found of the exact quality required a new company has been launched at Wind fall. Ind.. to build a plant, the second at Alexandria, and engage extensive ly in the manufacture of this odd and useful product of nature's labora tory, i The company is headed by (Senator Mock, of Tipton, the promoting stock holders being Every A. Mock. Mont gomery McKay, Benjamin F. Legg, Wilbur C. Legg, John M. Summers, L. D. Summers and Jefferson R. Hill drup, all prominent Tipton county business men. The company is cap italized at $75,000, and the new plant is to be built at Alexandria. It is significant that the two fac tories in- the United States alone which are running and which have the only crude material from which this rock wool can be made are pros perous, and are always behind their orders. Farm Product Sale Is Vast. Washington. The department of agriculture in a report on the trade with noncontiguous possessions in farm and forest products says that the value of exports of domestic farm products to foreign countries, includ ing the Philippine islands, in 1905 was $S26,904,777. With the Philippine trade eliminated the value of the do mestic exports to foreign countries amounted to $825,746,927. The ship ments of farm products from the United States to the noncontiguous possessions, including exports to the Philippine islands, were $14,700,000, or 1.8 per cent of the value just given for domestic exports to foreign coun tries, excluding the Philippines.

Horticulturists are investigat ing In order to discover the secret of the abnormal growth. OPOLY that the water-power of the magnificent TRYING NEW "SMOKELESS COAL." Pittsburg Official Experimenting So as to Abolish Nuisance. Pittsburg. In the effort to further the movement for the abolition of the smoke nuisance, Director of Public Works J. W. Clark is experimenting with "smokeless coal" and is hopeful of getting satisfactory results which will lead to its general adoption for the production of steam. No preference is to be given to any special brand of smokeless fuel, but during the past few- days a number of tests have been made under his pro duction of an article mined in the cen tral part of the state. The boilers of the Park building, the Annex hotel and the Arbuckle building were em ployed for this purpose and the results have been highly satisfactory. Mr. tjiarK says out ntue smoke is pro duced and believes it will be possible to avoid even that little with care. The coal is described by Mr. Clarfc as dull in appearance and so soft tftat it crumbles easily in the hand. At the same time it produces an intense heat and is highly appropriate as a boiler fuel. It is said that a chemically treated coal is also to be tested, and that the results of all the tests will be made known to owners of boilers so that they may choose among those offered, with the experience of the city to guide them. The early adoption of an antismoke ordinance is regarded as a foregone conclusion, so that all the Information which can be obtained in this manner will be of great im portance to users of fuel. FILES RECORD 160 YEARS OLD. Chicago Man Clears Title to Lands in Massachusetts. Cambridge, Mass. A document has been filed at the probate court here. that was just 160 years late in reach Ing its destination. Edward A. Hill, of Chicago, handed the paper to the registrar of probate. It is yellow with age, yet in a fair enough state of preservation to be easily read.

The commissioners wrote out their report and it is dated jNoveniDer zi, H4b. inis paper, among a lot of others, was handed through succeeding generations until it finally passed into the hands of Mr. Hill. The property owned by Abraham Hill at that time embraced a great deal of land in Arlington and Belmont The record turned over by Mr. Hill will have no effect upon the titles of property in either town except to greatly simplify matters and to clear titles. HEAVIEST TWIN TEACHERS. Mount Joy (Pa.) Also Has Oldest School ma'ams in State. Mount Joy, Pa.

Getting Off Street Cars Backward to Be a Thing of the past. Columhus, O. Just as soon as the invention of a Columhus man works out in practice, women will no longer be twitted about stepping backward from moving street cars. W. II. Pontius, chief clerk of the United States pension agency in this city, has invented a shield for street car handles to prevent persons alight ing backward or jumping onto mov ing cars. The shield is being tested on car No. 615 of the Oak street line. Careful observers verify the state ment that the fair contingent does, as a rule, alight the wrong way, and those trying to do so on car No. 615 have, upon observing the shield handle, turned when getting off and taken hold of the handle in front of them. Men who have started to board the car with the shields while it has been in motion have desisted because of the risk involved in grabbing a handle with the shield flush with it and only two and one-half inches from it. Interviews with many different per sons show a unanimity on the part of the public for the adoption of the new accident preventer. "GOOD LUCK" FOR DYING TREE. Horseshoe Thrown on Limb, Horse Chestnut Thrives as Never Before. Canton, O. It was "good luck" for the large horse chestnut tree on the front lawn of the Chance home, in North Cleveland avenue, when an old horseshoe was thrown over one of the limbs many years ago. The own er of the tree was not superstitious, but the late Peter Chance could not understand why the trees in his yard were dying. Mr. Chance had just cut down one of the best ones, when its mate, the horse chestnut, showed symptoms of the same trouble. One day an old horseshoe was found in front of the house and thrown over one of the lower limbs so that it touched the main trunk. The tree showed signs of life. At any rate it did not die, and to-day it is the best tree on the lawn. The edges of the horseshoe can 6till be seen protruding through the bark. A member of the Chance family said: "Of course, the horseshoe had nothing to do with - the recovery of the tree, but it was 'good luck.' The shoe has been on for 25 years now." Women Employed on Trains. Berlin. High officials of French railroads have inspected the German lines on which have been placed wom en railway attendants and have found them a great convenience to women passengers. They have, therefore, de cided to introduce the woman attend ant on all through trains on the Paris, Lyons & Mediterranean railway. The women attendants will not take the place of porters at present on the Pull man cars of the Vichy and Nice ex presses, but will he additional to the men attendants. They will wear a suitable uniform as the German at tendants do. Four Hour Day for Monkeys Now. Kenosha, Wis. A monkeys' union may not be a possibility, but in the fu ture monkeys who come to Kenosha with vagrant organ grinders will not be allowed to work more than four hours a day. The other day two Ital ians were in the city and kept two monkeys dancing on the streets until they fell from exhaustion.
