We hope the government -will in
Yeetigate the telegraph business, It
ta an obscure subject, upon which
light is needed. John Wanamakor,
when postmaster general, looked into
it a little, and thought the early in
vestors in Western Union must have
been getting about three hundred
per cent a year. The North Caro
lina railroad commission made such
examination as its limited powers
permitted, and opined that about
ninety millions of the stock was wa
ter having been issued as extra div
idends and so on. At any Tate, every

The answer is, of course, that tho in

use; yet it must have sounded rather
odd to persons who wished to tele

labor question happened to be in

the prime factor of tho industry.

The continued eruptions of the'
impurities of the blood through the
skin of the face and other parts of
the body in the form of pimples,
blackheads, boils, fleshworms, ecze
ma, blotches, blemishes, scabby

and chronic acne, poisoned skin, red

HE MADE IT ALL RIGHT
A small boy was asked to take
dinner at the homo of a distinguished
professor in Princeton. The lad's
mother, in fear lest he should .com
mit some breach of etiquette, gave
him repeated directions as to what
he should and should not do.
Upon his" return from .the great oc
casion the mother's first question
was, "Harold, did you get along at
the table all right?"
"Oh, yes, mamma, well enough."
"You are sure you' didn't do any
thing that was not perfectly 'polite
"Why, no nothing to speak of "
"Then something did happen.
What was it?"
" "But I fixed it all-right, mamma."
"Well, I got along pretty well un-
til the meat came, but while I was 1 1
trying' to cut mine it slipped off on
the floor. But I made it .all right."
"What did you do?" .
"Oh, I just said, carelessly, "That's
always the way with tough meat."

A BUG IN HIS BRAIN
Pasquale Parretto, a nephew of
Rocco Cirullo, convicted of murder
ing his wife, and under sentence to
be hanged, today petitioned Judge
Martin Bell to appoint a commission
in lunacy to make an examination of
Cirullo's mental condition.
Parretto alleges that "some bug
or insect penetrated Cirullo's ear, and
is now crawling or walking around
in, his brain; that said bug was in
his head at the time he committed
This Is a repetition of Cirullo's de
fense at the trial, but the" Judge took,
no stock in It. A decision will be
rendered later. Altoona Correspon

THE FORCE OF A CYCLONE
Careful estimate of the force of a
cyclone and the energy required to
keep a hurricane In active operation
reveals the presence of a powt that
makes the mightiest efforts of a man
appear as nothing in comparison. A
force equal to more than 400,000,000
horse power was estimated as de
veloped in a West Indian cyclone.
This greatly exceeds the power .that
could be developed by all the means
