He says that Experiments which have been con Uncted with this alfalfa grain diet fiow it to be a wonderful food on hlch to grow and fatten hogs. I MOOSE HORN OF PLENTY. flying Bull's Struggles Reveal Vain Gold to Hia Captors. Oscar T. Nelson, formerly of Belling Jam, Wash., recently wrote to relatives Spokane, Wash., from Fairbanks, Alaska, that by killing a bull moose Bear Fairbanks creek he and his part ners, Washburn and Johnson, pros pectors, have come into a fortune by the discovery of a vein of gold uncov #wd by the long horn of the moose in death struggle. The animal was shot from a blind at distance of 150 yards, the first bul jfet striking a vital spot. While quar tering the moose Nelson discovered that the rock which had been exposed from under a layer of moss torn l«vso the animal bore gold In large quan tities. The hunters made a closer Investiga tion and immediately staked out sev eral claims, on which they filed at falrbanks alrbanks. A rush of miners from followed the discovery, 'rt Nelson adds that the animal is be lieved to be the famous Anaconda •boose which was frequently seen by •liners operating along the creek. The ^read of antlers Is a little more that Seven feet, and the carcass weighed *1,200 pounds. FINE WHITE STRAWBERRY. MM Be Qrown In Depth Winter, 8ays Its Creator. A A white strawberry which will ||0row throughout the year and Is su perior to the common red strawberry, •t Which survives but a few months, is the latest plant creation of Hugo llllenthal, landscape gardener and horticulturist, of Berkeley, Cal., who jll the chief organizer of juvenile hor ^Hcultural societies in the bay cities. According to Llllenthal, the new beri -sUf is capable of propagation In the depth of winter and is of perfect form «*id flavor and much more delectable than the red strawberry of the mar |fcets. He declared that the berry may be planted in close rows, which inter feres not at all with its productive ness. A small patch of the new straw $ berry, he said, will keep a small fun supplied throughout the year. ""TRAVELING CLINIC. ^Kallftidt Will Transport Free Car to 8pread Medical Education. Acting on the suggestion of Past As distant Surgeon Colby Rucker of the Marine hospital service, the California State board of health has in prepara tion a railway car laboratory to Illus trate methods of preventing disease, .•ays a San Francisco dispatch.

Peru is publishing the excellent map results of her official surveys, and henceforth her cartographic products will bring her Into closer touch with most of the mapping of the world, be cause she has now adopted the Green wich meridian. It will be a conven ience to hor own citizens, because they will be able to see more easily the geo graphical relations between thetr own territory and that of other nations. They will observe, for example, that the meridian of 7." degrees west of Greenwich, which divides thefr repub lie into two nearly equal areas east and west of it, is the same meridian that passes through Camden, N. J., just a little east of Philadelphia, says th«" New York Sun. The erroneous idea Is widely prevalent that Peru lies far west of the Atlantic coastal plain or the United States, though, in fact, Peru is directly south of it. Local pride the world over has led to much geographical and navigational in convenience and confusion. When the United States coast survey made the first chart of New York city In 1844 it referred to the city hall in New York as the initial meridian. It encourages profanity among ship masters whe they need to use some foreign charts to find that those of France refer to Par is, those of Spain to San Fernando and those of Portugal to Lisbon, a city that Is more than 0 degrees west of Green wich. The International geographical congress in August last found It neces sary to request all the nations that are co-operating in the production of a map of the world on a uniform scale to refer all longitudes to Greenwich. A common initial longitude would be a universal convenience, and the pros pect is that all nations will ultimately adopt Greenwich, as most of them have already done. There are other variations in chart making which might better be made uniform. Many of the great nations use the meter unit to indicate sound lngs and heights, while Great Britain and the United States use fathoms and feet. There Is no agreement as to the use of symbols expressing various kinds of Information. This Is particu larly Inconvenient for navigators who find It to have the charts of several nations In their chart rooms. ROOSEVELT'S 98 MILE RIDE. President Rode Seventeen Hours to Refute Criticisms of Officers' Testa. In the interests of showing that his endurance tests for army officers have not been excessively hard. President Roosevelt recently rode ninety-eight miles on horseback and was none the worse for it the next day apparently. When he dismounted at night at the White House door, more than seven teen hours after having departed therefrom, be explained, according to a Washington dispatch, that he want ed to "prove to the critics who have found fault with the recent order re quiring all army and navy officers to take a physical test that if a president who is not In training can ride ninety miles plus in one day without being laid up In bed thereby it should not be too much to ask the men who are supposed to be in the best of physical training all the time to ride ninety miles in three days." Mounting his jumper Roswell in front of the White House door at 8:30 o'clock in the morning, he dismounted at the same place at 8:40 o'clock at night. The journey was to Warren ton, Va.. and back. "And Virginia roads in the winter time," said the president, "are not usually In the best condition." On the return trip the last thirty miles of the journey were made in sleet and rain, while the last fifteen miles were in almost pitch darkness. When he dismounted his coat and hat were frozen stiff with sleet and Ice. In less than an hour after returning to the White House the president bad changed his ice coated clothing for evening dresfs and appeared in the din ing room, ready for as hearty a meal as he has eaten for a long time. If any of the critics of his "army riding order" had dropped in about that time they would have been Badly disap pointed, for the president did not show In the least by his walk that he had been sitting for nearly seventeen hours In a hard saddle.

Portsmouth, Eng., Jan. 27.—The ninth annual meeting of the Labor party of Great Britain, which assem bled here today, will disofiss matters of importance to the working peopl" of this country and to those in other lands who are interested in measures looking to their advancement. The, Labor party has thirty-one represen tatives in parliament and it was largely due to their efforts that the old ago pension law, which went into effect Jan. 1, was enacted. Among the proposals to be dis cussed at the meeting^or convention, as it would be called in the United States, is one fixing the old age pen sion limit at fiftv-flvo years and grant ing pensions to physically incapaci tated workers at the age of thirty. To provide the necessary funds it is proposed that an income tax of 2 shillings in the pound be levied on In comes of £20,000, 3 shillings on In comes of £30,000 and corresponding rates up to £200,000, beyond which ail incomes shall bo confiscated to the state, James R. MacDonald, member of parliament for Leicester, the secre tary of the Labor party, will submit resolutions including demands for th! special taxation of state conferred monopolies, increased estate and legacy duties and a substantial be ginning of the taxation of land val ues. Other resolutions will demand Ptate insurance for -workmen, the maintenance of school children, a universal seven-hour day, the nation alization of land, railways, mines and hospitals, a minimum universal wage of 30 shillings a w?ek and a universal adult franchise fcr males and females.

The system has already been adopted on the Illinois, and the reports received from her convinced the authorities that the methods Mhouiil be extended. Making Tramps Work.
