It would take ninny jinges to relate

"Many of the Infiints born 'n the last
year have never tasted milk, either
human or animal." Paris Correspond

quoting responsible Englishman Just
back from Berlin.
"The almost complete lack of nour
ishing food has resulted In n jirevn
lence of rickets so great that .!. per

WORLD'S GREATEST SALT BED
Supply in Lower California, It Is As
serted, Is Beyond Possibility
On Cnrmen Islnnd, In the Gulf of
Loreto, Lower California, are the great
est salt beds In the world, being two
and n half miles wide. The salt Is of
natural formation and lies In super
posed strata 07 Inches In thickness nnd
with n strata of water between each
of salt. Although excavations' of 11
feet have been made without failure
of salt, the extreme depth of stratifica
tion is unknown. The surface alone
is worked and as the salt from this Is
carried away, the water from the lower
strata rises to the surface, and, after
coming in contnet with the nir and sun
shine, within a fortnight fills the old
strata with new salt. The salt Is dug
out practically jiuro nnd by means of
n diminutive railroad Is delivered on
shipboard at a cost of but 25 cents a
ton. The Jesuit missionaries offered
to entirely support all the California
missions In return for a perpetual
grant to them of Carmen Island, but
the king of Spain refused to consider
the proposition. It has been said that
If all the lleets of Europe gathered
there to load salt they never could ex
haust It, not only on account of the
great size of the deposits, but prin
cipally because the salt is reproduced
as soon .as taken out.
It Is stnted that after the signing
of the Austrian peace treaty In Pnrls,
Pnderewskl, who represented Poland,
shook hands with the other allied plen
ipotentiaries, using both bunds for the
operation. The celebrated pianist was
not always so free with his magical
hands. Some years ago. while shaking
hands with n friend, his lingers came
Into contnet with the lighted end of a
cigar, nnd for n day or two he was
unable to play. Thereupon ho heavily
Insured each of his flngors, nnd to re
duco the chances of such n happening
again he made It a rigid rule not to
shako hands with anyone.
