Followers of Healer Ask Permission to Erect Now Churches. Nearly 200,000 persons in the min ing districts of South Belgium have signed a petition asking the govern ment for permission to erect churches for a new creed of theirs, which they have called "Antolnlsm." Antoine is the name of a coal miner who some years ago inherited a little fortune and started curing people gratuitous ly by mere spiritual means, based on spiritualistic practices. He was several times prosecuted for illegal practice of the medical profession, but acquitted, as lie does not pretend to make use of scientific methods and employs his alleged mys terious fluid only, as a medicine to free the sick of wielr diseases. Prob ably by the simple means of auto suggestion many invalids have been restored to at least temporary health by Antoine le Ouerisseur, who has become so immensely popular that he is now considered as being gifted with divine power hence the desire of tit coal miners to practice the religion of "Antolnlsm" in specially appoint ed temples. It is not believed that the govern ment will accede to the request al though the petitioners' do not desire , the state subsidies to which all offi cially recognized creeds are entitled by law. The government Is of the opinion that there are enough creeda already in existence to satisfy the people.

LOOKSTEP ABOLISHED IN WALLA WALLA PEN Declaring it utterly useless and worthless, a thing without good, C. S. , Reed, warden of the state peniten tiary at' Walla Walla, Wash., for mally consigned the prison lock-step to the oblivion from which it came. Since the beginning the lock-step has been the custom at the penitentiary. When the prisoners came in . to their meals or marched out to them they did so in lockstep. The lockstep, stripes and other relics of a more bar barous age are a thing of the past at Walla Walla. "The lock-step and the striped suits," continued Warden Reed "have come down to us from the past. Why or how they originated Is now of little interest It suffices that whatever may have been the reasons which actuated their originators, they do not hold good today. The lockstep serves no purpose. It accomplishes no good. It Is a aenseless custom whioh has outlived its time. The striped suit has not been seen here for some time. The prisoners wear plain gray clothes, with no distinguishing mark but the prison number." FIND NEW GULF STREAM.! Geologist Locates It Off the Coast of Siberia.
