Cbarlee Y. Peterson, . Justice oli the

judgment that is of interest to the
whole United States. Put briefly, that
judgment is, "Dodd's Kidney Pills ai
othe best Xiiiney medicine on the

"And Mr. Peterson gives his reason
for this judgment. He says: "Last
winter I had an aching pain in my
back which troubled me very much.
In the'morning I could hardly straight
en my back. I did not know what it
"was but an advertisement led me to try
Dodd's Kidney Pills. After taking one
box I can only say they have done more
for me than expected as I feel as well

Pain in the back is one of the first

Knral Free Delivery Aid -At
the recent Internaulnal Good
Roads Convention,, at St Louis, Hon.
Frank E. Nevlns, of the United SUtes
Postofflee Department, delivered "an
address In which b said: , - -
"The establishment of the rural free
delivery of mail throughout tha coon
try has produced a marked Improve
ment In the condition ot the highways.
When there is a prospect ot rural free
delivery In a community, work Imme
diately begins on the roads. There
are now In operation 23,000 rural
routes over which carriers travel MO,
000 miles delivering mall to about
9.000,000 people. More than - 15.000
bridges hart been constructed over
streams that would not hare been
built if It had not been tor the estab
lishment of the free deli very system.
Nearly every portion of the country,
where road conditions will warrant It
Is now supplied with this service. But
In many sections the bad conditions ot
the roads, or tha lack ot bridges, pre
vent the extension of the service. The
rural carrier f a standard route la
now expected to travel about twenty
five miles each day to earn his salary
of $000 a year. He la required to fur
nish and maintain his own outfit and
team, and to give a bond of $500 for
tha faithful performance ot bis duties.
Experience has demonstrated that this
distance Is too great on account ot the
bad condition ot the roads. So .many
carriers hare resigned, thereby caus
ing much confusion and labor in the
department, that the Congress Just ad
journed has been compelled to add
$170 a year to the salaries of the car
riers ot the country. This Increase ot
salaries amounts to about $4,000,000 a
year additional that the department
has to pay to maintain this service on
account ot bad roads. Over a good
graveled or macadamized pike road a
carrier can easily make twenty-five
miles a day six times a week, v-With
tha roads as they are, it Is a question
whether the next Congress will not be
called upon to add another $1,000,000
to the salaries of the carriers. ! - '
"Under the road laws of most of the
Western States at tha present time
work is done upon the roads In the fall
by the various road districts, when
there Is no work to be done on the
farms. In the spring this work disap
pears. Nothing permanent remains,
and the roads are in as bad condition,
or worse, than they were before. The
cost ot $2,000 to $3,000 a mile for the
construction of hard roads in this
Western country is too great, in most
Instances, for road districts, townships
and counties to bear; neither Is It
right that they should bear the entire
cost The public at large, which shares
directly or indirectly la the benefits,
should contribute to tha expense.
There never will be good roads in this
country until the National Government
takes the Initiative in this movement
and the respective States of the Union
Join In with liberal contributions, and
this again is supplemented by local
enterprise. Continental Europe, Eng
land and Ireland are covered with
hard broad pikes built at the expense
of the governments of those countries.
No country in the world ever yet had
or ever will have permanent and pass
able highways constructed and main
talned by local authority.
"Sixty per cent of the population of
this country lives in the cities and vil
lages; 40 per cent lives in the country.
It is not fair' or Just to place the en
tire burden of good roads upon the
shoulders of the farmer. The general
public shares directly or indirectly In
the benefits and should bear the ex
pense of an equitable tax for this pur
pose on all assessable values. The
weight of it upon the Individual would
then be as light as a summer shadow.
While this specter of taxation may
frighten some of our skittish country
friends and cause them to rear and
plunge a little, they will find on closer
Inspection that the goblin is a harm
less creation of the Imagination. They
will get back in benefits ten times
more than they will pay out in taxes.
"Why some of our friends spurn
Government aid when it is offered
them I cannot understand. They claim
to be opposed to it on principle, and
can see no good in it There are some
people so constructed that when look
ing into a pool of water they can nev
er see the sky and the clouds above It
reflected on Its surface, but only the
mud at the bottom. ,y
"This Government never fails to do
the right thing in the end. It will not
fail to do the right thing In this in
stance. The Impetus given to this
movement by a few progressive states
men who Introduced measures in Con
gress last winter authorizing national
aid In the construction of highways,
will ultimately produce the results
aimed at It cannot fall to do so be
cause the public interest demands it;
the progress of the age demands it
the welfare and development of the
country at large demand it, and it is
bound to come in spite of those who
raise their voices in opposition to it"

In writing with certain forms of ink
on ordinary paper, placing the sheet

A Swiss Investigator (R. A. Relss, ot
Lausanne) haa recently made Investi
gations in reference to tha above phe
nomenon and In reference to the con
ditions under which It may be pro
duced, It appears that the forma
tion of tha image depends principally
on the Ink, although It was discovered
that tha latent Image may be produced
by nearly one-half ot tha inks In cur
rent use, out of thirteen different varie
ties of ink seven having produced a
positive result It further appeared
that tha formation ot the image d
pended upon tha presence of adds in
the colored mixture, the gum and the
sugar having no part in tha phenom
ena, although the paper on which the
writing, haa been placed gives different
results. The beet results were obtained
with paper well sized and polished, for
tha reason that the contact In thla case
is closer, thus favoring tha production
ot tha Image. ; f
The duration of the contact Is not
necessarily long. In general about an
hour, whlla In order to reveal the 1m
age two very simple measures are re
sorted to. The first method Is to ap
ply the back of the sheet on which the
latent image Is supposed to be a warm
iron, an ordinary flatiron, which Is held
La place until the paper Is slightly
browned, after which the image will
appear sometimes very clear and com
plete. The other method doea not make
any change In the paper to be exam
lned. and consists in placing in con
tact with the latter a sheet of nitrate
of silver photographic paper for sev
eral hours alx to twelve the two
sheets being exposed to the light The
photographic paper will completely
blacken, but the latent Image will
stand forth very distinctly. It should
be stated that the leaf on which a
latent Image exists loses this Image by
contact with water or alcohoL Paris
The Great Raeaian Lake.
Lake Baikal, which figures so much
in the Oriental situation, is a some
what remarkable body of water. Its
name is a corruption of the Turkish
Bei-kul, "rich lake" the reference be
ing, presumably to the valuable fish
with which it swarms.
Lake Baikal ia the third largest body
of water In Asia. The Caspian and
Aral seas are the two larger. Both are
salt, however, while Baikal Is fresh.
It la, therefore, the largest fresh wa
ter lake in Asia, and the sixth In size
in the world, the five Great Lakes of
North America each exceeding it ia
area. , Its waters occupy a remarkable
depression In the vast plateau of Cen
tral Asia. The level of Its waters Is
1,300 feet above the sea, while tha bot
tom of tha lake is, in some places,
more than 8,000 feet below the sea
leveL ' Its depth Is, therefore, 4,500
feet In the deepest parts. J .
The lake la 830 miles long, and from
nine and a quarter to forty miles wide.
Its waters are a deep blue, and re
markably clear r There are a number
of Islands In it; the largest Olkbon, is
forty-two miles long. There are nu
merous hot springs on the shores, and
earthquake vibrations are frequent
The annual value of Its salmon, stur
geon and other fisheries is about one
hundred and sixty thousand, dollars.
Fresh water seals are abundant and
they are caught for their fur. It re
ceives the waters of several streams,
the main one being the Salnega River,
eight hundred miles long. - The upper
Angara River, also ot , considerable
size, enters its northeastern end. Its
outlet Is the Lower Angara, on which
Irkutsk Is situated. ' ;
The reason why the Siberian Rail
road was hot built around the southern
end ot the lake is that the solid rock
of the mountains reaches to the wa
ter's edge, and the task would be her
culean. Events in the East may com
pel it nevertheless. '

The Radium Atom.
Sir Oliver Joseph Lodge, the English
physicist, contends that radium has
not upset received scientific doctrines.
He says that those who thought It was
tn Inexhaustible store of energy, or
wss generating energy afresh which
bad not previously existed, were mis
taken. Tho radium atom had In It a
large store of energy, Just ss the sun
bsd, If they could see radium atoms
they would find them, as a rule, as
quiet as any other atoms; only one lu
a million would be seen to be, as It
were, smashing up, throwing off bits of
itself, and the whole property of ra
dium depended upon that Everything
material was In a state of flux there
was birth, culmination and decay; and
this waa a characteristic of the mate
rial universe a universe which must
have had an origin. The birth of mat
ter as well as the death of matter was
what they were now looking for.
Thinks Soap Injorloua;
An English writer asserts that tha
English people have greatly deterior
ated physically because of the too fre
quent use of soap. The English he
says, are too clean. The Creator gave
us a natural oil to protect the skin and
make It supple, and we pass our time
removing this oil with soap. ' In con
sequence, we are more vulnerable to
colds, to rheumatism, and to all sorts
of disease. Soap opens the pores of
the skin, and disease enters with ease.
"Remember," said the man with the
red face and angry eyes, "the worm
will turn." ' ,
"Well," answered the cold-blooded
citizen, "let him. About all the com
fort the average worm gets Is a chance
to wriggle." Washington Star.
