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
; 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

Abdul llamid, deposed sultan of Tur

$20,000,000. AVhere he got it is not
worrying the Young Turks as much

wily old fellow, and will not hand

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

eight-pound pulley fell from the barn
roof last evening. The loy was help

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
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
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
The trustee asks that all the trans
fers be declared void and the policies
left in the lu.nds of the trustee with

Want Osteopaths in 1910.
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
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.
No Baseball at Grand Rapids.
Judge Connine in the circuit court
at Grand Rapids granted a permanent
injunction restraining the Grand
Rapids Central league baseball team

noise made by rooters and damage
done by foul balls which went over
the screens.
Attacks Glazier Deal.
Two bills In chancery were filed by
the Detroit Trust Company of Detroit,
trustee of the bankrupt estate of
Frank P. Glazier, one against Henri
etta Glazier, the wife, and her brother,
Frank Sweetland. and the other
against Emily Glazier, the mother. It
is alleged that life insurance policies
made over by Glazier in 1SP6 and 1897,
as the documents purport to show,
were not in fact made over until after
he bad become insolvent, and should
therefore be listed as part of the estate.

Almost Any Mother.
The mother of a large family fell
ill and died and the attending phy
sician reported that she died of star
vation. It was incredible, but he
proved it: The woman had to get the
dinner and then spend the next two
hours in waiting on the family anil
getting the children to the table. It
was nver on record that she got all
of them there at the same time and
they came straggling in all the way
from potatoes to pie. By the time
she had wiped the last face, her own
hunger had left her and she had nt
desire to eat. Chickens, the doctor'
said, come running at feed time, but
children don't. A hen has a better
chance to eat than a mother. Atchi
