toms bottoms on both the Atlantic and the
Pacific will delay the delivery of the
new rolling stock and additional shops
must be erected at Vladivostok before
such great quantities of locomotives
and cars can be put together speedily.
Meantime Russia must make the

and locomotive power and the Amer American

in a study of the immediate problems.
The Russian roadbeds are in excel excellent

were well built originally and the

through the work of peasant women,

By the Russian methods twenty twenty-four

the fuel is transferred from piles to
the tender by means of steam shovels.
Work that could be done in five min

requires much time. Then the Rus

equipment necessary for the washing

not been required because engines
took water so slowly and labor was
so abundant that it was possible to
supply the cars with water by hand
while the locomotive was being cared

American railway engineers have ad advised

Pig iron is among the needs of
Russia which officials have reported
to the American experts. Worn
rails and other iron and steel have
been used very prodigally by the rail railways
ways railways in construction work. At nearly
every railway station in Russia tons
of old steel rails are in use as hand
railings. They are used at railway
crossings for fences and are found in
other places on railway property
where wood would serve as well. In
the larger centers hundreds of tons
of old steel and iron could be collected
by the government from railway
property on short notice. This ma material
terial material would meet the urgent demand
for iron without placing further bur
den upon overloaded ships, and it i3
not unlikely that the government will
avail itself of this metal.
Russia is also in need of far more
coal than its mines are producing.
The American Railway Commission is
investigating the great Denetz coal
fields with a view to determining
whether it will be possible to produc
the required fuel by enlarging the
present mains and speeding them up.
The rails on all Russian railways
are light. Consequently, it is not pos
sible to attain the speed possible on
90 and 100-pound rails. But railway
administration in Russia is not cen centralized

By the employment of division super superintendents

The "Jeffersonian," of which Thos.
E. Watson is editor, and the "Masses,"
a socialist magazine, were denounced
by Postmaster General Burleson in a
communication to the Senate Friday.
He declared they were leaders in an

enlistments, to obstruct the draft law
and to prevent subscriptions to the
liberty loan. He declined to give
other reasons for barring the Masses

Governor Catts sends to Seth
Woodruff of Orlando a letter in which
he says he hears his enemies have a
plot to get him out of the state and
then impeach him. Almost any law lawyer
yer lawyer in Tallahassee would have told
the gov. offhand that such a thing
would be impossible. The only way
to impeach him without his being
present would be for him to commit a
felony which would cause him to flee
from the state, in which case im impeachment

The LaFollette amendment to the

over the state, warning the people to
head off the effort being made by J.
ed de Berry, Cary A. nardee, tne
Tampa Times, Orlando Reporter-
Star, Dixie, the Ocala Star, and such,

the other is that they are badly scar-

The Star is informed that a flat-

FAIRS ARE BIG FACTORS
(Western Horseman)
In urging people to support fairs
S. T. Simpson, of the University of
Missouri College of Agriculture, says:
"No rural community can hone to
make advancement or to remain pro-
ressivG without some means of
brinirimr before its neonle the pro-
ducts of that community. Further
mo no man can hoDe to continue to
make advancement in his chosen in-
d t unless he learns from other
men interested in the same field of
operation. Farmers recognize now
more than eve before the imDortance
of mingling with their neighbors, ex
changing ideas, making criticisms

Fairs afford untold opportunities

viewpoint as well as from the view-

wjn jn money prizes as exhibitors,
True, the money offered is a great in-
ducement in the way of defraying ex-
penses, but many exhibitors might
wen have as much money in their
pockets at the en dof the week by
leaving their exhibits at home. On
tin. nther hand, those who exhibit
take home a new opinion of their own
products, and have established in
tneir own minds revised standards
which will aid them in selecting and
preparing exhibits for the following
year. In addition every exhibitor,
whether a winner or loser, takes
home more or less advertising. Ad-
vertisin secured at fairs is consider-
ed 0f the best as evidenced by the
many exhibitors' and by the increased
business which has come to those who
exhibit. No breeder of purebred
st0ck should neglect a single oppor-
tunity to place it before the public,

breeds has come as a result of these
puDlic exhibitions and ratings. Many
have been encouraged in the produc-
tion of better stock simply through
the incentive gathered at the livestock
shows. No man who hopes to con-
tinue as a producer of high class live-
stock can afford to miss a single op-
nnrtunitv to attend livestock shows.
Unless he attends such shows he loses
sight of the correct standard and gets
behind the times. The fair circuit is
the school of the constructive breeder.
Few men have attained success as
breeders who have not been close
students of show ring standards and
awards. These men must necessarily
become fewer because of the rapid
strides in breeding and the increased
competition.
"He who neglects to make use of
his state, county or district fair not
only weakens his own position but
neglects to support a movement which
is vital to the state or community m
which he lives. On the other hand,
the public should realize that nothing
can do more to encourage better
breeding, feeding and management
of livestock than a successful fair,
The fair is just what the people make
it. By their attendance and support
it can be made a great factor in state
and community betterment. Without
their support it must tell to those few
who do attend the story oi a non
progressive, inactive commonwealth.

History of "Stepmother."
"Stepmother" is a word with a com commonly
monly commonly unsuspected history. Probably
most people if called upon to explain
it would say that it meant a woman
who had stepped into the place of the
true mother. Dr. Johnson, at any rate,
believed that this was the suggestion
of the word to most minds. Really
"step" ki the Anglo-Saxon "steop," the
original meaning of which appears to
have been "orphaned." Stepchild, step step-bairn,
bairn, step-bairn, stepson and ?tep daughter come
first, and tken by gradual fading of
the etymological meaning of "step"

mation inflammation is set up in the nearby tissues.
Hague has said, that "gout is rheumatism, and
rheumatism is gout." If uric acid is formed in excess
within the body it is passed on to the kidneys, which
act as a filter to pass off this poison. If the excess is
not excreted by the kidneys, it is distributed thru the
tissues. The choice sites for such storage are in the
joints, muscle sheaths, where the circulation is weak weakest,
est, weakest, and where also the alkalinity of the blood is lowest.
Consequently we must do everything to throw of! this
uric acid poison, and simple methods are best. Flush
the kidneys by drinking six to eight glasses of water
between meals. During winter months the circulation
is apt to be sluggish and the blood stream retarded.
Eat less meat, drink more water, and take ANURIC

Fearful Effects of the Venom of
the Dreaded Fer-de-Iance.
THE WORST OF ALL SERPENTS
Only Instant and Heroic Treatment Can
Save Life After a Stab by Its Deadly
Fangs A Battle With Its Enemy and
i Master, the Mongoose.
There exist a large number of ven venomous
omous venomous serpents we have many of
them In the United States but prob probably
ably probably no other spot in the known world
has such a death dealing snake as the
island of Martinique, In the Caribbean
gea. This is the fer-de-lance, scientif scientifically
ically scientifically known as Trigonocephalus lanoe lanoe-olatus,
olatus, lanoe-olatus, and it can, beyond the shadow
of a doubt, lay claim to being the most
deadly serpent of the earth. Its bite
means death.
There are eight distinct varieties, the
most common being a dark gray and
black speckled, which coloring enables
it to conceal itself easily among roots
and stumps of trees. Another variety
is a clear, bright yellow, and when
hidden in the freshly cut cane it can
scarcely be distinguished from the
stalks. It also may be a dark yellow
or coal black with a yellow belly.
This Is not a large snake, rarely ex exceeding
ceeding exceeding five feet in length and In cir-
cumference approximately the size of
a child's arm. To repeat, the bite
means almost certain death and should
not the service of a physician, or pen pen-seur,
seur, pen-seur, as the natives eall him, be ob obtained
tained obtained within a very short time the
venom does its deadly work the flesh
grows cold, softens," becomes pulpy,
changes in color, quickly begins to
spot, and a great chilliness creeps
through the blood. This lasts only a
few minutes possibly half an hour hour-then
then hour-then death.
If the victim be fortunate enough to
get a physician upon the scene post
haste and no artery or vein has been
pierced there is hope Just a faint hope.
But even If life be saved the danger is
not entirely removed, for In many
cases necrosis of the tissues follows
the flesh corrupts and falls from the
bones, and the body molders as does a
tree.
There is, however, a heroic method
of treatment often brought into use by
the Martinlquians. It Is the immedi immediate
ate immediate amputation of the leg or arm If
the bite happens to be In either. Even
this has to be done at once and before
the venom circulates through the sys system.
tem. system. ; There are to be seen today upon
the island many natives with limbs
mfssing, and in the majority of cases
it-is the result of having the mavhete,
or cane knife, applied after an experi experience
ence experience with a fer-de-lance.
Tbefer-de-lance Is a fighter, and no
domestic animal, with the exception of
the cat, has any chance In a battle
with this serpent. The cat, however.
In about nine cases out of ten will
come out of the fight 'with flying col colors
ors colors because of the fact that it is ap apparently
parently apparently quite as quick in movement
and at the same time uses what migtit
be termed ring generalship.
There is but one animal other than
the cat that -successfully wages war
against the fer-de-lance. It is the
mengoose (ichneumon), imported from
India a number of years ago for the
sole purpose of getting rid of the
snakes in Martinique.
Of the weasel family and looking
very much like those creatures, this
little fellow Is absolutely fearless so
far as reptiles are concerned and will
Just as readily attack one five feet In
length as one a foot long.
From the mongoose the fer-de-lance
will flee, but if cornered will put up a
great fight, using every trick at Its
command, a useless sort of contest,
however, for within a short time it
will be stretched out lifeless.
A battle between these two natural
enemies is well worth witnessing. It
is never a limited fight, but to a finish
always, and probably the snakes by
this time have come to understand that
when they enter such a combat It is
with the odds greatly against them.
The. mongoose is quite as clever a
ring general as the cat and uses that
gift to advantage. Strategy more than
strength is Its asset.
When they meet and if the snake
sees no avenue of escape it prepares
for battle as does the mongoose, -but
in a more leisurely manner. It takes
about one minute for them to get fully
prepared. There Is no trifling, how however.

The mongoose circles about the rep reptile,

closer and closer,' to dart out ita head
and then quickly jumping out of harm

manner, causing the snake to change

ever reaching the objective point. At

PRACTICAL HEALTH HINT.
Liver Spot. 4
3 The probable cause of "liver S
spots" is chronic derangement or
sluggishness of the liver. Their
presence indicates the necessity
for improving the condition of t
the alimentary system in gen-'
eral, and this can usually be done
best by a diet of buttermilk or t
apples or grapes for some weeks. S
Such a diet must be adopted
gradually, never suddenly. One 3
4 meal should be changed at a
time, and in returning to the nor-
mal diet the same precaution
should be taken. It is impossible
to give precise Instructions for
aay case without having the nee-
essary information about the pa-
tient, and It is best to consult a 4
physician.'
