The business of breeding pearly mussels artificially has been carried so far by the United States fisheries bureaus that a money profit Is confi dently promised. To produce in this way 1,000 baby mussels costs about 20 cents. When they are full grown 13,000 of them will weigh a ton. Thus the cost of producing a ton of pearly mussels of market size (if all survived) would be, as exactly reckoned, $2.08. Assum ing a loss of 50 per cent, the cost would be $5.36. Pearly mussels occasionally yield valuable pearls, but commercially it is the shells, utllizabie for mother-of-pearl, that are Importantly to be con sidered. The fisheries bureau has devoted Its attention wholly to the propagation of superior varieties of mussels, the shells of which have at present time a market value of $35 a ton.

Water containing radioactive com pounds 'Is used as a curative agent for certain Illnesses. Mere contact with such compounds for a sufficient length of time will make water slightly radio active. Pottery is bow manufactured which has In It a small percentage of radio active material. This Is mixed with the clay and baked In the kiln. Water left in pottery of this nature for a short time will become radioactive by "induction," and a health-giving drink Is made. Such water may also be employed In the watering of plants with good re suits, since the presence of a radioac tive compound near the roots of a plant is very helpful to Its growth.

SICK AND INSANE INCREASE Asks $30,000,000 to Provide for 10, 200 Additional Beds Many Pa tients Now Housed in Flimsy and Inflammable Structures. Washington. To properly house and care for the rapidly Increasing number of American ex-staldiers who suffer from tuberculosis, mental dis eases and other afflictions, approxi mately $30,000,000 Is needed Immedi ately, according to a letter written to Senator Ashurst of Arizona by Sur geon General H. S. Cumming of the bureau of the public health service. At the present time, the surgeon gen eral states, sick and Insane men whose afflictions can be charged to their service to their country, are increas ing at the rate of about 1,000 per month, and owing to inadequate hos pital accommodations, great numbers of them are of necessity being cared for In structures that are described as "flimsy and inflammable." In his letter to Senator Ashurst the surgeon general says: "I wish to Invite your attention to the fact that since June 2, 1920, the date on which the France bill, 'to au thorize the secretary of the treasury to provide medical, surgical and hos pital services and supplies for dis charged soldiers, marines, army and navy nurses, and for other purposes' was favorably reported, the number of patients has Increased from 17,445 to 22,292 for the week ended January X 1921. "In the week ended January 1, 1921, there were in hospitals operated by the public health service 12,511 pa tients, and in hospitals under contract with the public health service 9,781. Of this number 19,019 were patients of the war risk insurance bureau. It Is understood that there were approxi mately 3,000 patients of the war risk insurance bureau In hospitals operated by the National Home of Disabled Vol unteer Soldiers, and In army and navy hospitals. ' Patients Increase 1,000 Per Month. "The present rate of Increase In pa tients in hospitals of the public health service Is approximately 1,000 pr month, and It Is expected that before the peak Is reached the number of beds on request will approximate 30,000 to 35,000. It is estimated that the peak will not be reached before 1927 to 1929. "The public health service now has, or In the near future will have, under operation hospitals providing approxi mately 19,878 beds. Of this number of beds 10,347 are In hospitals of flimsy and inflammable "construction or in hospitals leased by the service under leases which will expire at certain pe riods after the declaration of peace, or are otherwise not to be counted up on in the program for permanent care. "An analysis of the 19,019 war risk Insurance patients in hospitals of the public health service for the week coded January 1, 1921, shows that they were distributed according to lisease as follows: Tuberculosis, 7, 586; neuro-psychiatrlc, 5,680; general medical and surgical, 5,743; total, 19, 019. "The most pressing need Is for tu berculosis and neuro-phychiatric pa tients.

New Tork. The bureau of railway economics has prepared a memoran dum comparing operating results on British and American railroads, which shows that the average trainload In Great Britain for the six months to June 30, 1920, was 150 tons, while that for the United States for the same period was, 710 tons. Operating and traffic, as well as geographical, condi tions in the United States and Eng land, it is explained, ore 60 different that comparisons of train or car load ing may be Considered misleading, hut It is pointed out that a direct com parison, designed to set out the differ ences In detail, must have some value, especially when nil the .factors In tbi comparison are taken Into account. The average freight train load In the United States In 1888 was 176 tons ; In 1898, 226 tons ; in 1908, 352 tons; in 1918, 628 tons, and in 1920. for six months, 710 tons. Every dec ade from the first has shown marked advances, with the curious coincidence that in 1888 the average traínload In this country was greater than the Brit ish average for 1920. while the Amer ican average for 1888 was almost the same as that for one or two of the In dividual companies that top the list in England today. long distance kisses and a beauti ful blonde proved the undoing of Samuel Domko, according to his wife's testimony before Judge Trude In the court of domestic relations. "I might never have caught him at all If he hadn't picked out an affinity right across the street," said Suzanna, the wife. ' "I began to notice a blonde woman ' across the street, sitting in the win dow every evening waiting for some one. Finally I caught her waving at him and tten he would go up to her beds for general medical and surgical patients. "In round numbers 10.000 beds are urgently needed, of which the beds for tuberculosis and neuro-psychiatrlc pa tients are of the greatest urgency. "At the estimated cost of $3,0U0 per bed, 10,000 beds urgently needed would require an appropriation of $30,000,-000." Midnight Fire Sweeps Graves in City of Dead Santa Barbara.

Compared Quoting these figures, a bulletin of the Association of Railway Executives says: "An important statistical unit In the new English statistics Is aver age revenue, or receipts per ton per mile: The average gross receipts per ton-mile in England for. the month of January, 1920, were 2.328 cents, and were Increased to 3 cents In the month of June, 1920. This increase was due to the higher level of freight rates made effective on January 15, 1920. The average for the six months ended June was 2.8G6 cents. These average are gross receipts, and include charges for collection and delivery. Excluding such charges, the average Let receipts per ton mile were: First four weeks (to January 31) 2.107 cents; second four weeks (February), 2.689 cents; month of June, 2.708 cents; average for six months, 2.629 cents. '"The average receipts per ton-mile for class 1 railroads in the United States, which correspond to the Brit ish averages, exclusive of collection and delivery charges, were .972 cents for the six months to June 30, 1920. "For the six months ended June 30, 1920, the class 1 railroads in -the Unit ed States carried 189,907,457,000 ton miles of revenue freight, earning $1. 847,217,911. with an average receipt per ton-mile of .972 cents. According to the new British statistics, the aver age receipts per ton-mile for the six months ended June 20, 1920, were 2.629 cent 8. "If the average receipts per ton mile which have been collected by the British railways during this six months' period had been 'charged against the freight traffic carried by the class 1 railways In the. Uhited States, for the tlx months ended June 30, 1920, the latter would have earned $5.455.327.11S Instead of $1,847,217,911. "In other words, British rates ap plied to American traffic would have cost the shippers of the United States 3.600.000.000 in six months, or $7,200,000,000 per year. British Cars Smaller. "The 207.281,000.000 ton-miles. In cluding non-revenuevfreight, hauled by the class 1 railways in the United Stares for the six months ended June,- 1920. were carried by an average train consisting of 30 cars averaging 20 tons each. "If the railways in the United States had used British cars, which have an average load of six tons. In moving the tonnage quoted above they would have moved trains consisting of 120 cars, or more than Vhree times the nunilwr of cars per train. "In basiling the 207,2S1,000.000 ton niiles of freight during the six months' period, class 1 railways in the United States, operated 232,540.000 freight train-miles, t. e. in trainloads of 710 tons. Applying the British train load of 150 tons to the ton-mileage hauled in the United States, the rail ways in the United States would have been forced to operate 1,195,356,000 train-miles, or nearly five times as many train-miles as the' number ac tually needed under American operat ing conditions. "The estimated length of haul In the United States for the six months, was 316 miles. The average length of haul for the British railways for the same period was -57 miles-. If the aver age haul of the British railways had been in effect in the United States, American freight would have been in terchanged 5.54 times as often as it was. "In other words. If railways in the United States had carried their freight at the rate per ton-mile charged by the British railways, they would have earned $3,000,000,000 more." flat.

Food Supply Threatened Through the Drift of the Population to the Cities Now Is Great Opportu nity to Take Up Land. The question, "How is the country to be fed If the population continues to drift to the cities?" is one that should create an agitation that will bring about a reply that will mean a solution. The census, recently com pleted, reveals a situation truly alarm ing, one that has never been known in the United States before. The ur ban population Is now greater than that of the rural districts by about 4,000,000. Cities and towns, each with more than 2,500 Inhabitants, contain 54,318,032 persons, or 51.4 per cent of the total population, while the farms and smaller towns together claim only 51.399,739 persons, or 48.6 per cent of the total. As Is pointed out by an Influential Chicago dally, "the drift to the cities is thus proved- and, reduced to figures, showing a top-heavy condition of the Industrial life." Farming is and must remain the basic Industry of the world, and cer tainly should remain the basic indus try of a nation with a continental area like ours. It is small profit to gain the markets of the world with manufactured goods If agriculture has decayed so badly as to furnish an un certain subsistence for our people, and fluctuating crops are reflected In price changes that upset the economic Ufe of the country. Yet we are within measurable distance of that condition. If the present or recent drift toward the cities continues. Most writers on this topic take it for granted that young folks go from farms to cities merely to make tnore money. Doubtless that Is something of a motive at all times and was a very strong one In the period Imme diately after the war, when city Indus tries paid wages totally Impossible for farmers to rival. Tt Is hoped that this drifting has reached Its apex. Unless It has, and there still remains a possibility of Its continuance, the effect cannot be fore told. The great wave of manufactures for war purposes has ceased, and with It the number of those employed In factories 1s diminishing by thousands daily. It is therefore hoped that there will again be heard the slogan, "For ward to the Land." If prices to which farm land has reached are prices pro hibitive to many, the opportunity is still open elsewhere. There are states possessing large areas of good land that may still be had at prices within the reach of many, and It is doubtless true that In self-preservation it will be necessary to bring these lands un der cultivation. The prices are not high, considering their value. Then, too. there are the lands of Western Canada, that hold out an Inviting pros pect. Reports from there show that the prosperity of the farmers there is not mythical. Farming there Is con ducted on scientific principles, and the climate Is such as appeals.- The production amply repays all the ex penditure that may be made. The social conditions are of a character that make farm life a pleasure, and tends to keep the young man and young woman from pining for urban life with so many dráwbacks. if con ditions as above mentioned, showing such a large percentage of population In the cities and towns, continues, they will require food. The opportunity te supply It Is by the means suggested. Go forward to the farm, become In dependent and become a factor in supplying the world's needs in -cattle, sheep, grain and such other commo dities as the farm will produce and the resident of the city requires.
