was their custom, in one of Breaduray

-wtoat would be called an unseemly
Lour by the Now York day worker, to

one of tliein remarked that Eugene
l?*ield had stirred more latent sympathy
in the hearts of the reading
public with his "Little Boy Blue" than
any newsapcr man he knew, and this
led to the telling of an incident that
had occurred the daj before to J. The
story was told to J. by a friend, who
had hastily jotted down the facts:
"Tonio Salavatore, organ grinder.

The Sun on the Hair Kills Microbes?
Ventilation Cures Catarrh.
From an article which appeared in
Cosmos and translated for the Literary
Digest we learn that the new fashion
of going without a hat is not limited
to this country. According to
the writer, it lias evervthinsr hvaion
ically in its favor and the arguments
against it need only be stated to bo
refused. He says:
"The mass of hair that covers the
top of the In til is a feature of the
human race in both sexes and appears
to be; one of its most stable physical
eharacteristics. Nevertheless <>ng
observation is unnecessary to prove
that this characteristic is weakening
and that the vigor of the hair is decreasing
ill man TMr?xu n nnnotinn
presents itself: Is this due to transformation
of the species or must we attribute
the fact to man's habits? This
second solution appears to be correct,
which is consoling, since it allows us
to hope that the evil may be checked.
This loss of hair that has become
more striking from one generation to
another by heredity is due, according
to some scientists, to the habit of
i-uvuring vnu Head.
"This habit must affect I ho hair injuriously
in three ways: (1) Hy depriving
if of the lnY-i-iving light of the
sun, of free ventilation and of the
movement of the hairs by air currents;
(2), by pressure on the small
arteries of the scalp, which bring
nourishment to the hair; (I!) finally.
oecuuse mi ncaa coverings are an excellent
culture medlium for microbes
and facilitate their development.
"The promoters of this reform arc
meeting at the outset with certain
objections: (1) To uncover tlio head
ma- bring on colds, neuralgia and
rh -umatisni. They answer that colds,
etc., are of mierobian origin
nnd cannot come from the scalp. CJ)
As for neuralgia and rheumatism,
they are convinced that if the habit
of leaving tlio head uncovered is ad
onted in vonlh these troubles wll ih.i
follow. In fact, they say tho uncovered
parts of the heat, are not subject
to them any more than the covered
part?less perhaps. (3) So far as the
incontestable danger of exposing the
bare head in the sun is concerned
there are many ways of avoiding this
without, smothering the scalp. (1)
Tho -fear chat septic bodies may be
deposited on the uncovered parts, especially
in cities, certainly deserves
consideration, but care in the toilet
will enable us to escape the consequ
on cos. (.">) Finally the foar lesl the
hair should ho injur* <1 hy sun, wind
or cold has no serious basis, since
unprotected parts of the head are covered
with vigorous hair."'
Boxing the Ears.
Thorn are several things very commonly
done which are extremely injurious
to the ear, and ought to he carefully
avoided. One ol' these is the
practice of boxing children's ears.
The passage of the ear is closed by a
thin membrane, especially adapted to
be inttuenccd by every impulse of
the air, and with nothing but the air
to support it internally. What, then,
can hi? more likelv to in turn this; mom.
brane than a sudden and forcible compression
of the air in front of it? If
any one designed to break or over
stretch tbe membrane, a more efficient,
means could scareceiy be devised than
to bring the hand suddenly and ford'
bly down upon the passage of the ear,
thus driving the air violently before it,
with no possibility of its escape without.

authorities assert that many chil

Cotton Mills Enlaryed.
The installation of 10,000 more spindles
and 200 more looms at Monarch
Cotton Mills, in Union, one of a group
of big cotton mills in the immediate j
section in which S. M. Millikcn and j
assoniatru of K'<?\v o?. : I
stockholders, has just been complete d
and marks quite an important step in
industrial development, when the present
state of the cotton goods situation
is considered.
This mill has rather a remarkable !
history, anyway, for since breaking
dirt for the foundation in the spn<ig
of 11)00, it began operation just a year
afterward with i0,00<> spindles and 800
looms; tlie same fall 5,000 more spindles
and 100 looms were added; agu'u
in the spring of 1908, the complement
was increased by 15,000 spindles and j
350 looms, making the total enuiu
mcnt then of 110,000 spindles and 750
looms. In (ho spring of 1901 tho
building still was not filled to its utmost
capacity, so it was decided to
bring (his about by putting in 10,000
spindles and 250 looms, which has juat
been done, ko that 40,000 spindles and
1,000 looms are now in operation in
this one mill alone.

Georgia. Railroad Commission Shows
How Its Ar.cieut Decrees Have
Been Ignored.
Some Interesting figures linvo been
prepared by Hon. Joseph M. Brown
oi uio Georgia railroad ocmmlssion,
going to show that tho standard tariff
which was fixed by the commission
some twenty-five years ago, is really
not now effective because the railroads
themselves have cut and slash
eu it to suit tlie occasion and their
Commissioner Brown takes, for ox
ample, a series of important rates,
those which have figured largely in
the rate contest now going on before
the commission in behalf of Atlanta
uau uiuti 1)UI1U3 111 U1U BiaiO
F'or instance, the standard tariff
fixed by Hie commission between Savannah
and Atlanta h: as fallows:
Class 1, $1: elas,s 2, 91 cents; class
73 cents; class 4, 00 cents; class P,
4S cents; class G, 11 cents. But these
arc not. by any means the rates in
existence from Savannah to Atlanta,
the railroads having made a schedule
Df their own. which is as follows: Class
1, (i'.? ccnt:-.; class 2, 0\> cents; olaj;.
3, 51 cents; class t, K5 c< tils; class G,
35 cents; class (*>. :i:J ci-nto. It will
ho seen tlmt tiic.se rates are from 20
Jt 40 per cent below these fixed by
tho commission.
In the reverse direction frova Atlanta
to Savannah the discrepancy Ss
even greater. In other words, Atlanta
can ship to Savannah cheaper than
she can get goods shipp<*<l from that
city. The atapdard tarif? made by
the commission is tlie same in both
directions, but the difference is made
hy tho railroads. Tho standard tariff
on the first six classes from Atlanta
to Savannah is the same as that given
above from Savminah to Atlanta.
But here are the rates charged by iha
railroads from Atlanta to Savannah:
Class 1, Gl cents; class 2, 5! cent:;;
.'{ no Pf'tl t K nln?u .1 If; fantt."
class 5, 39 cents; class 0, 30 cents.
Many other examples might be given.
Tho commission's tariff between
Savannah and Rome Ik on class 1,
$1.10; the rate charged by the railroads
Is 74 cents. The commission y
rate between Savannah and Athens
is 5? 1; the railroads charge (!9 ecius.
Tho commission's tariff from Savannah
to Columbus is 0(1 cents on clu.ss
1; the railroads charge C9 cents. Fro :i
Savannah to Mr.cun the commission's
tariff is 88 cents on lirst-elass: the
railroads charge C4 cents.
Discrepancies of this kind might,
lie multiplied ad infinitum, hut they
are sufllcient to show that the ni l
roads have manipulated the .stanuurd
irilift' flvml l\V tlw? /-i.mmk-ew.n
suit their own conveniences. And vot
every time the question o( rates eovnes
to the front the cry is "Let the : (andaad
tariff alone."
* And so it was wh in tiie Savannah
committee urged that, the standard
tariff should ho let alone, C'omims
siontr Brown presented these and other
figures to show that She railroads
themselves had not let the standard
tariff alone.
The railroads, Commissioner lirown
said, were created l>y the sMate of
Georgia. Shall it lie hold that the creator
cannot do what vs permitted to
the created? If the railroads can reduce
the standard tariff at will and
inane it suit their own purposes, c:\n
not the railroad commission order reductions
in that same tariff where, lo
its mind, tlie occasion for them ar::os?
The railroads do not seem to think
so; hence the contest that is now in
progress between mem and Use state
