OFTEN THE CASE,
; Gossip of
What Is Goind On at the
New Ships to Make
WASHINGTON. Tho navy clonal t
niont oxiicrtu figure that tho
United Slnt.cs navy will bo tho first In
runk In the world when tho four new
.battleships proposed by Secretary
Newberry have been completed.
' Tho approximate time of tho com
ldetlon of these ships Is tho closo of
tho year 1911. Hy that duto there
will have been completed these four:
Tho Delawaio and Dakota and the
Florida and Utah.
The specific points made by tho ex
perts, however, Is that tho four now
ships which llhvc been suggested nro
to bo of 25,000-tons displacement each
and will carry eight 14-Inch guns.
Such a squadron of battleships will
be unlike and superior to anything In
naval history, both as to displacement
and to main battery.
Tho astounding but absolutely true
statement Is mado by tho navy ex
perts that the 11-Inch guns will bo
effective at ten miles. It Is also stated
by these exports that Great Britain,
after the appropriation by congress
for tho four proposed battleships, will
never bo able to regain Its lead In
modern battleships over tho United
Stntes. England's greatest proposed
battleship, tho Fondroyant, Is, accord
ing to the details in tho United Stntes
naval bureau of intelligence, Inferior
to the Florida or the Utah.
Alcohol School Opened by Government
THE government hus now opened its
alcohol school In tho city of Wash
ington for tho instruction of tho peo
ple of tho United States In proper
methods of making and UBlng the de
For this purpose a model still has
been erected close by the department
of agriculture which is big enough to
work up 25 bushels of corn a day, con
verting that quantity of grain into 75
gallons of 95 per cent, alcohol that
Is to say, 95 per cent. pure. Tho plant
represents the smnllest outfit that can
be conducted profitably on a commer
Tho farmers cannot vory well see It
for themselves, so arrangements hnvo
boon mndo by which they may learn
about It. Agricultural experts from
the experiment stations in every one
of tho stntes are to go to Washington,
examine the nlcohol-inaklng outfit, see
how it works nnd listen to a course of
lectures explaining its management.
It will be their business when they go
home to tench tho farmers how to put
up and how to operate plants of this

Hearty Welcome for "Joe" Blackburn
IT Is pleasant to have Senator Black
burn back in our midst again, to see
his great, stalwart form swinging
through the streets, to moot his semi
cynical, semi-humorous smllo nnd to
feel lils hearty hand clasp, but It is
difficult to think of him In any en
vironment save thnt of tho senate
chamber whoro ho passed so many
yenrs. There has never been a mem
ber of that .distinguished body more
frankly, moro genuinely and genorally
popular than "Joe" Hlnckburn. No
matter how widely one dlffcied with
htm In politics, it was impossible not
to liko him, for thero Is nothing about
him to dislike. Ho Is a prlnco of good
fellows, a generous friend nnd a mag
nanimous foe. When tho battle is on
he fights with all the fight there Is
In him, but ho is as quick to forgive'
Mint "Makes Money"
THE director of the mint has "mndo
money" Tor the United States in
more wnys than one. Ho Is rejoicing
because tho government made a profit
during the fiscal year ended June 30,
1008, of $10,541,371 on tho coinngo ot
silver, nickel and one-cent bronze
This represents the difference be
tween the price paid by the govern
mont for the metnl3 and their coinage
Our Navy Lead All
Tho lcpoil that Great Hiltaln was
building a lll.r gun has been run down
by the naval authorities hero and they
state that it Is not ttuc. It Is also
rtatcd that thero Is no foundation
whatever for tho report that Germntiy
is building, or projecting even, live
battleships, each or which Is to carry
11 12-Inch guns.
It Is admitted now that the United
States stands second on tho list of
naval powois, and this is lurgely be
cause tho United States naval relative
power depends on modern ships
against which twenty or more of tho
Hrltlsh so-called battleships do' not
count and are not to bo taken Into
count, because not one of them could
approach within five miles of any of
tho United States battleships even of
tho Alabama class. Above that class
In tho United States nro tho South
Carollnn, Michigan and, of course, tho
American Dreadnaughts aro all nbovo
that class. In other words, the
United Stntes has ship for ship,
built and building, hotter and moro
powerful ships than Great Britain has
built and is building for the next
Tho navy department confidently
expects to see tho prediction of the
experts realized In 1911 and tho
United States will lead the world in
naval power. The experts dcclure
that when the statement Is mado that
Great Britain has at the present time
54 battleships against 29 of the
United Stntes, It only means an ap
parent numerical excess and thnt
when tho ships are compared one with
the other, there are moro dead or
obsolete types and classes In the
Hrltlsh navy than In any other navy.
Inasmuch as such n plant could not
be erected for less than $2,500 It Is
obvious that the ordinary farmer
would not be nblo to afford to con
struct one of the kind. Hut and here
Is tho point a group of farmers rep
resenting a small neighborhood might
Then they would bring their corn
stalks and other such refuse to tho
"mill" nnd receive In return the al
cohol. It Is a simple method which
farmers have long been nccustomed to
adopt where flour and other neces
saries were concerned.
The farmers aro eager to find a
cheap source of energy. NowndayB
multitudes of them uso gasolene for
such purposes aB grlndlngfeed, cut
ting fodder and running tho corn shel
ter, circular saw, horso clipper and
A farm in these times is more or
less of a factory. Hut gasolene Is ex
.pensive. Alcohol is comparatively
cheap, and when manufactured from
tho farmer's own vegetable refuso It
would cost next to nothing.
In France there nro 27,000 farmer
distillers who make alcohol for In
dustrial purposes from molasses nnd
sugar beets. It Is high time that this
Idea was turned to profitable account
In tho United States. Rotten apples,
frost-bitten potatoes, stale water
melons, cornstulks nnd cobs and
every other kind of vegetable refuse
are available for the purposo.

tho hatchet Is buried, it is never
It was with regret that Mr. Black
burn left tho senate, but ho has been
almost as happy In his new Hold ns on
his old stamping ground nnd in tho

Isthmian canal ho hus becomo ns

Washington, and the stylo of llfo In

United Stntes government houses tho

nificent stylo. Tho state in which
they live, Indeed, approaches that

grandees in that part of tho world, and

SKIN ERUPTION CURED.

That Little Sufferer Could Not Sleep
Cutlcura's Efficacy Clearly Proven.
"When about two and a half years
old my daughter broke out on her hips
and tho upper partB of her leg3 with a
very irritating nnd painful eruption. It
began In October; tho first I noticed
was a llttlo red surface and n constnnt
desire on her part to scratch her limbs.
Sho could not sleep and tho eruptions
got soro, and yellow water camo out
of them. I had two doctors treat her,
but sho grow worse under their treat

Remedies and only used them two
weeks when she was entirely well.
