THE BELDING BANNER
HELDINO, MICHIGAN THE MOSQUITO PROBLEM. What was done on the Isthmus of Panama can be as effectively done In New Jersey for the extirpation of the mosquito, says the Newark Star. The state Is the only power that can do the work, and should set about It In earnest. The Isthmus was notorious ly the most unhealthy region In the world until American engineers un dertook to conquer Its bad name. They ascertained that the mosquito was the conveyor of malaria and yellow fever that had carried off thousands of hu man beings. So they attacked the In sect In his lair. They destroyed the breeding places by drainage and other, methods. To day the Panama Isthmus Is as healthy as any section of the United States, and the change Is en tirely due to the work of the Amer ican engineers and sanitarians. The mosquito problem was attacked on the Isthmus with the determination to conquer. The problem In New 'Jersey has been dallied with. There has been no earnest purpose. The legislature has been lukewarm and parsimonious, legislators have been incompetent to size up the great Im portance to the state of ridding it of a pest that entails a property loss of many millions, keeps away popula tion and makes summer life a trial alike to the sick and well. A horrible story comes from Russia to the effect (hat there has been found in the Ural regions a sect of religion ists whose practices include cannibal-, ism. Some of these persons are said to be Asiatics and others men who have fled 1 jiu Russia. The system appears to be a combination of pagan ignorance, superstition and depravity and of decadence on the part of those who have cut loose from the restraints of modern civilization. Russia is vexed with many problems, but no doubt the government will do all in its power to break up practices sug gestive of the lowest order of the hu man race. , It is curious, but a fact, that more than one-fifth of the potash produced in Germany last year was consumed in the United States. The total out Tut was 495,000 tons, valued at the mines at $27,2:0,000. Of this 111,000 tons were shipped to the United States at a price 50 cents per ton in excess of the average price obtained in Germany. Taking into considera tion the cost of freight across the ocean, the American farmer must be payln gfor more for German potash than the agriculturist in the father land who uses the mineral to renew the fertility of his soil. Rut it is a singular fact that while potash is coming to this country from Ger many, potash is going abroad from the United States. A considerable -jirt of the output ofthe Tennessee beds is understood to be used in France. ; It's pretty late in the day for the French to wrest from Benjamin Frank lin the credit for inventing the light ning rod. The French Academy of Sciences, It is said, as long ago as 1764 recognized a French physician, Jacques de Romas, as having an nouned a means of diverting lightning in 1750, two years before the episode of Franklin and the kite; but the "whole French people honored Franklin when he was in that country as rep resentative of the struggling colonies, and it was a Frenchman who framed the epigram crediting him with hav ing "snatched thunder from the clouds and the scepter from tyrants." Erect ing a monument to Romas will prove nothing. . There Is every reason to believe that some three thousand years ago, in the time of King Solomon, there was an open channel through Suez, by which the light-draft vessels of the Phoenicians passed through on their -voyages to Asia and to the gold re gions of Ophir, which are now known to be in Africa, and reached from the east coast of that continent. In the course of time the two seas (the Med iterranean and the Red), by action of the waves, filled up the connecting channel, and so it remained until it was opened by the French under Les seps for traffic November 17, 1869, at a cost of about $85,000,000. It was sub sequently enlarged at moderate cost. Two members of the Cuban con gress fought a duel lately with swords. In this more civilized land we prefer our legislators to fight In the natural way. Abdul llamid, deposed sultan of Tur iey, is reported to be worth over $20,000,000. AVhere he got it is not worrying the Young Turks as much as the problem of how to make him give it up. The ex-ruler is a pretty wily old fellow, and will not hand back a dollar without a struggle. With but few exceptions the crowned heads of Europe have just cause to envy the populrrlty and se curity of the executive of a satisfied country like America. STORIES OF THE DAY BRIEFLY TOLD THE "DRY" CAMPAIGN IN BATTLE CREEK IS VIGOROUSLY PUSHED. NOSE, JAW, SKULL BROKEN Incidents and Happenings In Various Parts of the State of Major and Minor Interest. That certain of the persons caught in the dragnet of detectives author Ized to look for violations of the local option laws are in for jail sentences Is the prevalent opinion in Battle Creek. The work has to all appear ances been carried on In a thorough manner. In addition to the arrests made Friday, eight more warrants were served Saturday on three differ ent people, two of whom were placed under arrest the day before. Four more charges were preferred against Philip Hook, a former saloonkeeper, to all of which he pleaded not guilty and asked for an examination when arraigned before Justice Hattdorff. The warrants allege that Hook sold beer ami whisky at different times to one Frank D. Arnold. Julius Martin, secretary and treas urer of the Rattle Creek Hrewing Co., was arrested on two warrants charg ing the sale of bottled beer by the case. Mrs. Nora Rock, clerk in the employ of the brewing company, is held under two similar charges. She asked for an examination and furnish ed bonds in the sum of $200. Hook and Martin are each held on five charges thus far. There are more warrants to follow. A Boy's Terrible Injuries. Nose broken, upper jaw broken in two places, lower jaw fractured and frkull crushed these arc the injuries sustained by Standi, the Ll-year-old son of Felix Miller, a well-to-do far mer near Williamsburg., when an eight-pound pulley fell from the barn roof last evening. The loy was help ing the father unload rye when the rope became fouled and he tried to release it. The pulley was holding a weight of a half a ton and fell with terrific force, striking the boy on'the left side of the head. He will be blind even If he recovers. His pa rents are prostrated. Hold Money In Trust. The Soldiers' home board has final ly settled the excess pension matter to the satisfaction of all concerned. The board used to take all in excess of $12 a month and turn it into a post fund, using it for new buildings and luxuries. The old settlers con tended that the state acquired no good title to this money and did an act of injustice. Huntley Russell carried on a.' long campaign and forced .its abolishment. Many of the old fellows spent their money foolishly, and now the board has made another rule, taking away the same amount, but holding it in trust for the veteran or his fam ily. Sensational Charges Made. New fraud charges of sensational character are made in chancery suits filed against the wife, mother and an other relative of former State Treas urer Frank P. Glazier by the Security Trust Co. of Detroit, trustee in the bankruptcy cases. The suits are two In number, but of similar import. They are directed against Emily J. Glazier, mother of the former treasurer; Henrietta, his wife, and Frank Sweetland, a brother-in-law. The trustee attacks the trans fer to these persons of about $71,000 worth gf life insurance policies held by Frank P. Glazier in the Pruden tial, Home Life, New York Life, Mutual of New York and Massachu setts companies. The policies were assigned by Glazier to the relatives named, but the trustee declares that the assignments were really rade at dates much later than those Indorsed In the transfers, and when Glazier's affairs had reached a stage which made such assignments unfair and improper. In the case of one policy assigned to the mother, says the trustee, the date given is September, 1904. but experts who have examined the transfer indorsement declare that It was written in about three years later. The trustee asks that all the trans fers be declared void and the policies left in the lu.nds of the trustee with other assets to apply on the Glazier liabilities. MICHIGAN BREVITIES.

As the ghot of his father appealed to Hamlet on the platform at E!sln ore. so Mrs. Rosa Sutton maintains that the gbost of her dead son, Lieu:. J. N. Sutton, IT. s. Marines, whoso death is ipw the subject of a uav.t! court Inquiry, appeared to her at the time his death was announced and pointed out his murderer. This, she alleges the spirit declared to her, was Lieut. Adams, one of the defendant in the case, who was with Lieut. SuMon on the fatal night, had a fistic encounter with the dead offi cer ami who has already testified that Lieut. Sutton committed suicide. "Jlmmle? Sutton has guided' my hand in every effort I have made," says Mrs. Sutton. "His beseeching eyes are never turned away from me; sleeping or waking I see them, and I know iaat I shall be haunted by their appeal until I have finished my fight. "He was bone of my bone, flesh of my flesh; how could men take his life without taking a part of mine? How can they sully his honor and degrade his name without staining mine? "I would have fought for my son living, do you think 1 am cowardly enough to fall him when he is dead? "People have said that dead men tell no tales, but I know better now. My daughter has told how, while sit ting In my home. 3,000 miles away, 1 felt the blow which killed my son, but she has not told how he came to me later and said: 'Mother, I am not a suicide. My hands are as free from crime as they were when I was five years old.' "Then he told me the names of the men In the fight, and said: "'They beat my head and shoved my face down into the dirt; they jumped on me with their feet; they kicked and beat me worse than a dog in the street, mother; but I did not know I was shot until my soul passed into eternity.'"

In passing judgment on a man charged with having blackened his wife's eyes, Police Magistrate House, of New York, declared in court: "What this state needs is a whl plng post for wife-beaters and I am willing to head a movement to estab lish it. We also need something for the wives who are beaten. From 10 to 50 badly whipped wives come here dally for warrants for their husbands and then, when the brutes are ar raigned, the women plead forgiveness for them, refuse to prosecute and all I can do is to turn them loose. If we had a whipping post with a cat-o-nine-tails attachment. I think we could discourage the wlfe-beatlng habit." A bill for the re-establishment of the whipping post in Peoria, 111., has been introduced in the Illinois state legislature. THE MARKETS. Detroit Cattle lrv-fed steers.

A committee of experts decided that they were small white fish and the seizure with the arrest of McCann followed. The asylum got the fish as soon as the state was through using them for evidence.

Michigan osteopaths who attend the convention of the American Osteo pathic association, to be held In Min neapolis, will bring strong Influence to bear to secure the 1010 convention for Detroit. Through the efforts of Dr. T. L. Herroder, president, iuul Dr. Charles A. Hennett. secretary-treasurer of tho Detroit Osteopathic kh iety, and Dr. L Ashmore, a vigorous campaign is be ing made among the prominent osteo paths of the country to win their sup port for Detroit. California and one of the eastern states are trying to get the convention. Of the '.r00 r,teopi.thj in practice, the American association's member ship includes more than 2,Gb0. The national convention usually draws more than l.r.OO members. "Michigan's claims will be support ed o.i the ground that tho state was one of the iirst to recognize osteopathy as a science and to regulate Its prac tice by law," says Dr. Charles A. Hen nett. "Our state was ono of the first to give the osteopaths :.:) independent state board." Delay May Cost Franchise. The villr.ge council of Hcllovue Is divided over the question of giving W. 11. Zimmerman of Lansing a to days' extension in which to complete his high tension wire system to that village. Charlotte recently granted the extension but three of the Helle vut council made a trip over the route and came to the conclusion that the operations to date did not war rant an extension without a guaran tee that he would have the line ready for use at that time. Mr. Zimmer man has franchises at both Charlotte and Rellevue and it Is believed the delay will invalidate his franchises at both points. To get a new franclse would require a three-lifths vote of the people, including tax-paying women. Held In Prison Over Time. Charles A. Wightman, the prisoner who has been applying for release on a writ of habeas corpus, contend ing that he should be given good time by Which, under the commutation of a life sentence to 25 years, he should have been discharged last May, was released in a hurry, on receipt of news from Lansing that his commu tation papers specified that the good time allowance should be made. Wightman has been Illegally detained for three months and forced to work for the( state, but he was given the regulation $7..r0 in cash and a nine dollar suit of clothes and told that he was free. He took the first train for Hillsdale county, where he will go to work on a farm. There is reticence as to who is to blame for the blunder. Gloomy Outlook for Blind. , Trustees Hudson and Chatters of the Michigan Employment Institution for the Illind came to Lansing to con fer with the governor on the problem of securing funds with which to main tain the institution. There was no money on hand with which to run the institution, and the depleted state treasury made the outlook gloomy. It was believed Saginaw houses would be willing to extend credit for supplies, but the pay roll must be met with cash, and where this money was to come from was not apparent. The broom shop was dosed down, but a carload of broom corn was expected the middle of the month, and If money should bo secured by that time opera tions were to be resumed.
