General Wilson Reports Thjat Cuba
Is VeryMuch In Need of Im
Gives a Large Anjount of Statis
tical Information Regarding
Washington, Sept. 17. The war
aeparimeui m t.de pudtic todav the ab
stract of report from General James
II. Wilson, commanding the provinces
of Matanzas and Sant.i Clura. Gen
eral Wilson gives a large amount of
statistical information regarding the
provinces and their products -.which
will bo of interest to Americans in
tending to do business in the island.
General Wilson says the soci il con
dition have been much amedoraied
since the American occjpation, but
th it there are still h large number of
destitute people cared for and there is
a great need for roads. Tliese will
faciliale communication between the
towns and allow the freer movement
of staple products, each as sugar and
tobacco, which is now almost inter
dicted by the lack of anything except
the poorest sort of pack trails. He
says that railroad building will be
cheaper than miking wider roads, and
recommends one to connect Sancti
Spiritus and Placet as This road, he
says, could be built for $10,000 a mile
for forty miles. He says that there
are other roads which are very mach
needed, and there is also need of a
bridge over tho river Danuji, one of
the largest rivers in the island, which
is navigable between Rod .id and the
bay of Ceinfuegos.
He says by far the most important
product in Santa Clara is sugar, of
which the province furnished in 1SS9
42 per cent of the total exports from
the island. The provinces of Santa
Clara and Matanzas together furnished
in 1S!)8 !)I per cent of the total sugar
production of Cuba. The war left in
opeiation forty-one sugar centrals and
twenty-one others not in operation
but in working order. About eighty
seven were destroyed. Tho crop of
tobnceo in Matanz.is this year
amounted to 85,000 bales.
General Wilson says the revival of
agiiculture has progressed rapidly in
spite of discouraging circumstances.
The people are greatly in need of
draft animals, while pits, sheep and
fowls have entirely disanneared. The
native mules and horses at present
are the best adapted to locnl use, ow
ing to the very bad condition of the
roads, but when this is improved, he
eayp, the American horses will be in
demand. Coffee culture has been al
most abandoned for a number of years.
Consideraole interest is now being
taken in its revival. The value of
sugar land ranges from $3 to 960 an
acre, but the fo-eign investor will be
at a disadvantage, as compared with
the native, in the examination of titles
until responsible companies are es
tablished lo look up deeds and grants.

Little Rock, Ark., Sept. 17. It is
said that one of the probable results
of the anti-trust conference of gover
nors and attorneys general in St.
Louis will be the convening of several
state legislatures in special session for
the purpose of dealing with the trust
prob em. The convention, it is said,
will outline legislation that shall be
found desirable and that governors in
harmony with the movement will im
mediately after the adjournment of
the convention summon their state
legislature? together to enact uni
form laws in tho different states, fol
lowing the lines laid down by the con
ference. ' It is almost certain that should
the St. Louis conference recommend
this line of action Governor Jones will
convene the Arkansas legislature some
time within the next thirty days.

evening. The language in many
places is taken to indicate a firm, un

ever, concludes: "If her majesty's
government is willing and feels able
to make this decision a joint com
mission as at first proposed by Mr

Peculiar Disease That Is Kecomlng More
and More i'revalent.
Medical literature can give us no
definite data as to when this peculiar
affection was first regarded aa a dis
tinct and separate disease: Unmistak
able cases were reported In the six
teenth century, and since that time the
disease has been becoming steadily
more and more prevalent. The fact
that there la a hay fever association
in this country, which has records or
over 200.000 cases, will show how ex
tremely common the affection is in the
United States. Indeed, this country
and England are its principal 6cats.

It might be stated here as a rather

lish and Americans ar particularly
prone to attacks. Since It? earliest dis
covery the cause or rausop of hay fever,
have been enveloped in doubt. Every
conceivable reason, fn-ia the bkvsed
sunlight of heaven to peculiar odors
or animals or flowers, has been eagerly
accepted and as quickly rejected. It
was only when the gloom of mysticism
and empiricism began to give way to
the light of earnest thought and scien
tific study that some order came out of
chaos. It was early recognized that
the disease occurred in several succes
sive generations, so that hered ty was
looked upon as a factor of some Im
portance. Its annual appearand in
many sufferers not on'y on the s.me
day, but at a certain fixed hour, has
been noted by many observers; Indeed,
the victims themselves often predicted
accurately the hour of their first
sneeze. Cases are numerous of the In

tible; usually, however, the victim has
been subject to several annual attacks
before the middle period of life. The
symptoms on the part of the respira
tory tract led to early explorations of
the nasal cavity for possible cause. The
observers were not disappointed; al
most invariably the subjects of hay
fever have had some pathologic condi
tion existing in the nose; ulcer, polyp,
hypertrophy, or congestion of the tur
binates, deviation of the septum, re
mains of adenoids in the naso-pharnyx.
chronic nosapharyngltis, have all been
noted by various writers. It might well
be stated as an objection that the nose-
and-throat man who cannot find at
least one of the above conditions in
every case that presents itself should
give up the specialty; so that possibly
a pathologic nose does not play tha
important part it was formely thought
to. Among other predisposing causes
the one that has gained the most sup
port of recent years was that advanced
by Bishop at the annual mating of the
American Medical association in 1893.
In his own words, "an excess of uric
acid in the blood causes hay fever."
He showed that many patients afflicted
with hay fever have an excess of uric
acid in the blood during the morning;
further, that these were the ones that
were attacked during the early morn
ing Lours. He thought the paroxysm
of hay fever analogous to an attack of
epilepsy superinduced by the irritation
of some pathologic meningeal process,
tumor, adhesion, or hypertrophied
bone, and that an attack, itself caused
by a setting free of uric acid, on ac
count of the pathologic condition of the
nose was determined to that area.
Bishop claims that his theory does not
at all literfere with the neurotic the
ory, but on the other hand, seems to
clear up some joints previously ob
scure, as for Instance, the onset in the
morning. He thought that with the
correction of the possible pathologic
nasal rendition pienent, the attacks
were switched off, as it were, from in
volving the noas, but that the excess
of uric acid in the blood would be cer
tain to cause symptoms of uricacid

How Big Does the Moon Look?
There is an old, old controversy re
specting the apparent size of the moon
To one person the moon looks to be
about a foot across. To another it
laoks about as' b'g" as a cart-wheel,
while a third party will declare that
really It looks no bigger than a cllver
dollar. No two see it alike. As large
as a silver dollar, as large as a dinner
plate, an large as a cart-wheel these
comparisons are all good, provided it
is stated at what distance from the eye
the several objects of comparison are
conceived to be. A silver dollar at
a distance of fourteen feet, a dinner
plate it ninety feet, a cartwheel at 500
feet, the moon at a distance of 240.000
miles, all subtend an angle of about
half a degree, and have, therefore, the
same apparent sl2e while so vastly dif
ferent. There Is a singular optical il
lusion in regard to the moon's appar
ent size and alao that of the sun
which may be noticed while we are on
this suijoct namely, that when rising
the moon always looks larger than
when It Las attained to a considerable
altitude in the heavens. The explana
tion seems to be that when either the
sun or the moon is near the horizon
we can compare It directly with large
objects, such as trees and housea,
which, of course, look small in the dis
tance, and the impression of size is
heightened; but when It stands in mid
heavens there is no object with which
It may be compared. Actually, the
apparent size of the moon Is less when
it is on the horizon than when it is
near the zenith, for when it is in this
latter position our d!?ta:.ee from it is
about 4.000 miles the earth's semi
diameter less than when It is just ris
