Grow to Twice Actual Weight of
Those Exposed to Sunlight Only
Latest Victory for This New and
Peautiful llluminant
The experiments recently made at
Cornell University prove that the
be*»rtiful rays from the gas, acetylene,
are as effective as sunlight on the
growth of plants, and this may soon
become a subject for serious consider
ation by all progressive cultivators of
the soil.
The results of the experiments are
astonishing, inasmuch as they show
conclusively the great increase of
growth attained by supplementing
“The Light of Nature” with “The
Light of Acetylene” during the hours
in which the plants would otherwise be
in darkness. For instance, a certain
number of radish plants subjected to
acetylene light during the night, grew
to twice the actual weight of the same
number of radishes given daylight
only, all other conditions being equal,
and peas had blossomed and partially
matured pods ■with the help of acety
lene light, while without the added
light not even buds were apparent.
Acetylene is already taking its
place as an llluminant for towns from
a central plant, for lighting houses,
churches, schools and isolated build
ings of all kinds, and it is being used
successfully for many other purposes.
A striking and important feature of
acetylene is the ease and small ex
pense with which it can be made
available compared with the great ad
vantages derived from its use. The
machine in which the gas is gener
ated is easily installed.

Hear, O athletes! Have you tried
water baseball? No; not water polo
or water football, but the good old
national game, played on a lake or bay
or swimming pool, or a quiet bit of a
river where there is not much current.
If you haven’t tried it get in line
and begin at once with the new game
of the season. One need not be a
great ball player nor a star swimmer
to play the game. All it requires is a
rudimentary knowledge of baseball and
fair swimming ability. The outfit con
sists of a tennis ball, a yard or less
of broomstick and four rafts—one
large and three small.
The batsman and the catcher stand
on the big raft. On a small raft ten
yards away stands the pitcher. He
may deliver the ball in any style he
chooses so that it crosses the plate.
In striking everything goes—bunt, bin
gle, swat or foul tip. There are five
men on a side. The moment bat and
ball come in contact the batsman must
start for first base.
It doesn’t matter how the ball is hit,
you count it as fair. Indeed, it is a
triumph of skill to turn and swing
with the ball and send it flying past
the catcher.
Suppose you have driven a good ball
out near third base. You pile over
board with a dive toward first. As
you rise to the surface you see the
third baseman and the pitcher furious
ly swimming after the ball.
To your excited eyes it seems as if
first base were a mile away. As you
near the base you see the pitcher seize
the ball and turn in the water to throw
it. But it is no easy matter to throw
a ball while treading water, and the
chances are that the throw is a bad
one, and you are safe.
You nowr turn your attention toward
second. To steal it seems easy, and
so, as soon as the pitcher delivers the
ball, you start. But if all goes well
with the other team, when you have
gone about a third of the distance you
notice that the second baseman has
the ball. Giving up hope of gaining
second, you turn to regain first, only
to note that the first baseman has fol
lowed you and waits for the ball about
five feet to your rear.
You again turn your efforts toward
second, only to see the second base
man swimming toward you. With
much splashing you try to evade this
latest comer, but you are put out and
retired amid the 'yells of the onlook
ers. The game is full of fun. Some
times an ardent baseman will lean too
far over to one side in his efforts to
get the ball. This will cause the raft
to tilt until the player loses his bal
ance, and in his efforts to regain the
center of the raft it will shoot from
under him, and he will land smack on
the surface of the wrater.
The game is full of unexpected fan
cy stunts. The spectators laugh even
more than they do at the ludicrous
happenings in indoor baseball, for the
rolling and tumbling in the water
makes the mishaps twice as funny.
It is most important to have one
keen-eyed watcher constantly looking
out for all the players who are in the
water, so that there shall be no dan
ger of accident.—New York World.
Pet Project of Mark Twain that Came
to Naught.
Mark Twain and the late Rev.
Thomas K. Beecher of Elmira. New
York, were great chums. For years
Mark made his summer home at El
mira, and when the two were together
they were like a pair of boys just out
of school.
One day Mark said: “Tom. I’ve just
been reading this interesting book
Genesis, and I’m impressed with the
thought that we moderns are not giv
ing Adam, one of the greatest men in
history, a square deal. Here we go
erecting statues and monuments to
generals and poets and statesmen, and
actually forget all about our first an
cestor. It’s not right. Why shouldn’t
there be a statue of Adam somewhere,
erected by his grateful descendants?”
"There certainly ought to be, Mark,”
replied Mr. Beecher, “but nobody
knows what Adam looked like.”
“Well,” drawled Mark, “he'd prob
ably look as much like his statue as
the average victim does. I vote we
see to it that Adam gets his rights.”
The two set to work raising a fund
for a statue to Adam. A citizen of El
mira still living subscribed five thou
sand dollars; but that was as far as
the project got, for other interests
pushed it aside and it is now only an
amusing recollection. — The Sunday
Not Exactly What Lawyers Wanted.
Lawyers have some queer experi
ences,” said the Judge. “One of them
was telling of a case heard before me.
A young man had been arrested for
larceny and he sent for this lawyer.
“The young fellow told the attorney
that he was innocent, but that he had
no friends in the city and no money.
His mother, however, was in fair cir
cumstances and he knew that she
would help him. What he wanted the
lawyer to do was to defend him and
also send a telegram to his mother
telling of his fix and asking aid. The
lawyer agreed to this and made such
a good defense that the young man
was acquitted.
“He and the attorney went direct to
the telegraph office to which the mes
sage had been ordered sent and found
it. The young man was so grateful
to the laywer that he handed him the
unopened envelope, telling him that he
must take all the money that his
mother had telegraphed him. The law
yer tore open the yellow cover and his
eyes were greeted with these words:
‘Put your trust in God. I am praying
for you. Mother.’ ’’New Orleans Times

Men Who Make Millions a Year
“I made the thousands, the millions
made themselves,” the late Jay Gould
once declared; and, although the
statement may perhaps savor of ex
aggeration, it is probable that many
another man of millions would in
dorse J. D. Blair’s statement, “I made
my second million easier than my first
At what an astounding rate a for
tune may grow when once it has
passed the million rubicon, which t so
few of us may hope to reach, is proved
by the following statement of J. D.
Rockefeller’s wealth at different
stages of his romantic career. In 1865
his capital, all told, was a bare $5,000;
five years later it had grown to $50,
000; in five years more it touched
$1,000,000; another ten years made it
$50,000,000; five more years doubled
it; in 1899 his fortune had reached the
stupendous sum of $250,000,000; and
to-day. Just forty years after the first
thousand was saved, it is said to ex
ceed $500,000,000.
Thus, in fifteen years (1875 to 1890)
Mr. Rockefeller increased his fortune
a hundredfold; and in the next fifteen,
though he has only multiplied it by
five, he has added $400,000,000 to it,
representing an average addition of
five and a third millions every year.
To illustrate how possible such an
increase is, and how millions can
make millions, let us take one year—
that of 1890— In Mr. Rockefeller’s race
for riches. At the beginning of that
year he stated on oath that he was
. _ — — — ~ —
the owner of $31,000,000 in Standard
Oil stock. Before December came
that stock had appreciated 400 points,
and thus, as any boy can calculate,
his holding in the Standard Oil Com
pany alone had added $124,000,000 to
his riches without any effort whatever
on his part.
At the same time Mr. Rockefeller
had been bperating heavily In stocks
of half a dozen railways, and in co
operation with J. Pierpont Morgan
and James J. Hill had formed a colos
sal railway combination, with the re
sult that these transactions put $10,
500,000 more into his exchequer. From
these sources alone the American
Croesus added to his fortune nearly
$150,000,000 in a single year, a larger
sum than he had accumulated in the
30 years ending in 1895.
That a man who, like Pierpont Mor
gan, practically controls properties
capitalized at over $6,500,000,000 or
$1,000,000,000 more than the aggre
gate revenue of the forty-three princi
pal nations of the world—should be
in a position to make money, goes
without saying. It is interesting, how
ever, to see how and at what rate he
can add to his millions.
Five years ago, when the great coal
strike was on, and in the absence of
any prospect of a settlement, Mark
Hanna called on Mr. Morgan and told
him the strike would have to be set
tled at once.* Mr. Morgan accordingly
called a meeting of the mine owners
to receive Mr. Hanna’s proposals; and,
confident that the deliberations would
end in a settlement, he proceeded to
buy every coal share he and his
agents could secure.
Mr. Morgan’s foresight was Justi
fied; the strike was settled, prices
took a big leap upward, and the great
financier was able to sell at a profit
variously estimated at from $10,000,
000 to $15,000,000.
It is said that Mr. Morgan has clear
ed from $1,000,000 to $5,000,000 by
each of his great reorganization
schemes. Once he made a profit of
$3,000,000 by the purchase of bonds
from the Cleveland administration,
and, as a sample of smaller pickings
that have come so plentifully his way,
when the New York Central railroad
found it necessary, in 1895, to issue
45,000 shares of new stock, Mr. Mor
gan sold the entire block in Europe
and made a personal commission of
In 1890 W. K. Vanderbilt is said to
have netted $25,000,000 by operations
in railway stocks alone. In the same
year it is stated on good authority
that Russell Sage made a profit of
$15,000,000; James Stillman, Thomas
W. Lawson and James Hill netted
over $10,000,000 each, and William C.
Whitney and several others added
over $5,000,000 each to their fortunes.
During last year it is reported that a
dozen American millionaires increas
ed their already enormous capitals by
over $300,000,000 in sums ranging
from $5,000,000 to $75,000,000.
Alarm Clocks on Gravestones.
The Indians of Pala, in the foothills
of the Coast Range in the southern
part of the state of California were
converted to the Catholic faith by the
Jesuit Fathers, who founded a mission
among them. Though some supersti
tions prevail, their belief in the
Resurrection is strong.
Believing that the dead must re
main for some time in the grave, they
observe exactly the hour at which
the spirit departs, and the rude wood
en cross over each grave in the ceme
tery states the exact hour, minute and
day on which the person died. Sus
pended from the arms of one of the
crosses is an alarm clock, with the
hands set at 6:57. The alarm at the
back of the clock has been set at the
same moment. The person who
placed the clock there believes that
at the proper moment the alarm will
sound and will awaken the sleeping
spirit Another alarm clock, that
once hung from the cross above it has
fallen down and now lies in a dam
aged condition on the ground. Bot

Power of Social Boycott.
Some time ago, when President
Hadley of Yale suggested the social
boycott as an effective means of
bringing men to a sense of their duty,
serious questions were raised as to
whether the author of the suggestion
knew what he was talking about. But
in bringing Philadelphia councilmen
to time In the fight against the gas
steal the social boycott proved the
most effective of measures. One coun
cilman agreed to turn away from the
machine only when his wife took to
her bed from the effects of the avert
ed faces of her neighbors and former
friends. Another saw the light only
when his children came crying from
school with the story that none of the
other children would play with them
or even speak to them. Another gave
in when, upon requesting that he be
allowed to lead the Memorial day pro
cession of his ward, he was told that
an honest man would be given that
honor—Nebraska State Journal.

Verestchagin Did Wonderful Work
with Mutilated Hand.
A group of war correspondents were
talking about the unhappy Russian
painter, Verestchagin.
"Did you ever notice his right
hand?" one raid.
"Indeed, yes,” said another. “How
deformed it was. It seemed incapable
of creating those grim pictures.”
“Verestchagin,” resumed the first
correspondent, "once held up his right
hand before me with a sad smile. The
thumb was gone. ‘A leopard,’ he said,
‘bit my thumb to the bone—it had to
be amputated.’ The middle finger
stuck straight out, he could not bend
it. ‘A bullet once passed through this
finger, leaving it good for nothing,’ he
said. Then he moved the hand about
with an odd, stiff motion. ‘Several of
the small bones,’ he explained, ‘were
shattered in a fall from a pony on the
steppes. The muscles have been stiff
ever since.’
"Verestchagin's right hand endured
much before in the end it sunk in the
cold sea, but it never lost its cunning
with the brush.”
Great Lama’s Wonderful Palace.
“Without doubt one of the greater,
buildings in the world is in the strange
and remote part of the globe which ia
often alluded to as the ‘Forbidden
Land,’" said Thomas Dawson of Eng
land to the Washington Post. This is
the palace of the great lama, in
Shosa, the capital of Tibet. This dig
nitary’s castle Is 900 feet long and
437 feet in height. In stately grandeur
and massiveness it is one of the most
imposing structures reared by man.
The building contains 3,000 rooms,
many of them being of great size. It
is painted white, except a central por
tion near the top, which includes the
apartments of the chief inmate. It is
reported on good authority that the
roofs are covered with plates of solid
gold that present a dazzling effulgence
under the rays of the sun. Except for
its vastness, however, there is noth
ing about the palace of any special in
terest, except the private apartments
of the grand lama.”
Use Little Milk or Cream.
The government investigators find
that comparatively little milk is con
sumed In most southern cities. The
amount per capita in Richmond is not
quite one-half a pint, which is about
as high an average as in any other
southern city, while at Pensacola it is
as low as one-fifth pint, and in Mo
bile less than one-tenth pint. What is
true of the consumption of milk is
even more true of the consumption ol
cream. It can be said, according to
these Investigators, that practically
no cream is sold in the south for use,
as it is used in other parts of the
country. For Instance, they declare,
that “to buy cream for use In coffee
or with fruit is unheard of’—a state
ment that appears somewhat exager
ated. The making of ice cream is set
down as the principal use of cream
in Southern cities.—Louisville Cour

About What You Eat
When It comes to food, demand to
know the facta about what goes into
your stomach.
Not only that It is pure, but that
you are not deceived in the descrip
tion of its contents and condition.
Some flaked breakfast foods that havo
thus far failed are now being adver
tised In close imitation of the Grape
Nuts advertising, thinking in that way
to finally make a success of the fail
But false statements of the merits
of human food will never on earth
build up a business. These flaked
foods are not pre-digested. They are
not fully cooked and the starch in
them is starch still, and has not been
turned to 6ugar as claimed.
Chemical analysis tells the truth
and the analysis of the famous chem
ists of the world show Grape-Nut6 the
only prepared breakfast food In
which the starch part of the wheat
and barley has been transformed into
sugar and therefore ready for immedi
ate digestion. Why Is this true? All
the thin rolled flake foods are made
by soaking the grains of wheat or
oats In water, then rolling, drying and
packing. These operations do not
cook or pre-digest the starch.
Contrasted with this pretense, ob
serve the care, method and skill in
making Grape-Nuts.
The barley is soaked about one
hundred hours, then it is slowly
warmed for some days and sprouted,
the diastase being developed and part
of the starch turned to sugar (and
later on all of it), then the grains are
baked and the sprouts stripped off.
Then oomes grinding, sifting and mix
ing with the creamy colored flour
made from white and maccaroni
wheat This mixture must be skill
fully made in right proportions. This
blended flour contains just the ingred
ients demanded by nature to rebuild
the soft gray substance in the nerve
centers and brain, but how to make
the food easy to digest, that was the
It certainly would not do to mix in
drugs, for there is a certain failure
sure to come to the person depending
on drugs to digest food. They may do
for a temporary expedient, but pure
food and digestible food is the only
final resort and safe way. So to
change the remaining starch part and
prepare the other elements in this
blended flour it is made up into mas
sive loaves like bread, the inside Do
ing dark cream color and quite sticky
to the touch. These loaves are sliced
and again go through long cooking at
certain temperatures. Then the rock
hard slices are each one carefully in
spected and ground ready for packing
and use. having gone through 10 or 12
hours in the different operations.
When finished, each little granule
will show a sparkling substance on its
surface. A magnifying glass will
bring it out clearer and develop little
pieces of pure dextrose sugar, not
put on “or poured over" (as the bead
of a large Sanitarium once stated in
his paper, thus exposing his appalling
ignorance of food processes), but this
sugar exudes from the interior of each
as the starch Is slowly turned to
sugar in the process of manufacture.
This kind of sugar is exactly like
what is found in the human intestines,
provided the starch of the grains, po
tatoes, bread, rice, cake, etc., etc., has
been perfectly digested. But many
are weak in that form of digestion,
and yet need the starches, so Grape
Nuts supplies them pre-digested and
ready to go quickly into the blood.
Visitors are shown freely through
the works and can follow the steps of
making Grape-Nuts from the grain to
the finished product. The proportions
of different kinds of flour, and the
temperatures are not disclosed and it
seems impossible for others to steal
these secrets of the makers. But
purfty, cleanliness and skill are shown
in every corner of the immense pure
food factories. People who care for
results from choicely selected food,
those who want the food to rebuild
the soft gray substance In brain and
nerves that give the go, the vigor, the
life, will understand why the imita
tors who try to copy the announce
ments about Grape-Nuts have failed
In the past.
There’s a reason for Grape-Nut* and
l profound one.
