are prohibited from selling either of the narcotics named to children at all, or

is : "A medicine which relieves pain and produces sleep, but ichich in poison

Colon, C. Z. In writing or talking
about tho Panama Canal tho superla
tive degree Is very likely to bo over
worked. Tho canal Itself is tho big
gest thing of tho kind ovor under
taken; the locks are unequalled in
slzo; tho work of tho department of
sanitation la tho most remarkable
ever carried out, nnd ro U goes.
nut thero is ono other feature of
tho building of tho canal that calls
loudly for the superlative degree tho
commissary department and tho way
In which It has fed tho Zone. Not fed
It only, either, but largely clothed It
and supplied it with household neces
sities and even luxuries.
The commissary department is a de
partment of tho Panama railroad,
which Is owned by tho United States
end of which Chairman Goethnls is
president. As officially stated:
"The commissary department of tho
Panama railroad Is operated by tho
subsistence department of tho Isth
mian Canal commission for tho pur
pose of supplying employes of tho
Panamn railroad and Isthmian Canal
commission nnd their families with
foodstuffs, wearing apparel and house
hold necessities, nnd nlso supplying
food for tho hotels, hospitals, messes,
nnd kitchens operated by tho Isthmian
Cnnnl commission and for tho United
States soldiers nnd marines located on
tho Isthmus of Panama, nnd ships of
tho United States nnvy. It 1b esti
mated that tho department supplies
about 70,000 people dally, computing
ono dependent for each employo.
"The business of tho department for
the fiscal years ending June 30, 1912,
was $0,702,355.08, to transact which it
Is necessary to carry a stock valued
at about $1,000,000."
That sounds decidedly prosaic, but In
truth the operations of this great busi
ness machine nro almost romantic.
The vessels of tho Panama railroad In
unending procession bring to tho
docks at Cristobal tho vast bulk of
supplies and as Continually theso nro
sent out to tho scoro of stores main
tained by tho department along tho
routo of tho canal and at Porto Bello.
Every evening each storckedpor tele
graphs to tho headquarters in Cristo
bal the list of supplies of which ho is
In need, nnd during the night tho enrs
nro loaded. At 3:45 o'clock each morn
ing the long tApply train starts out
from Colon. It consists of 21 cars, 11
it which nro refrigerated, and tho food
and ice are distributed along tho routo
to that thoy may bo delivered to tho
quarters of families by 8 o'clock..
In Cristobal Is tho biggest store of
all, and It compares well with tho
huge department stores of American
cities. There may be obtained all
kinds of food stuffs, American and
European; clothing for men and wo
men, furniture, household wares, sup
plies for travelers, cigars and cigar
ettes Indeed almost anything one
might call for except intoxicating
drinks. Articles from foreign lands,
beings Imported by the government It
self, of course pay no duty, and con
sequently such things as fine English
chlnaware can be bought there at
prices far below those charged in the
states. It Is said on the Isthmus, and
generally believed, that the members
of congressional junketing parties
which from timo to time go down to
inspect the canal always carry homo
with them a lot of this choice por
celain. At the head of the commissary de
partment 1b the subsistence officer,
Col. Eugene Wilson, whoso huge phys
ical bulk 1b well matched by his great
executive ability. It would scorn that
no better man could possibly have
been found for the position, for ho haa
in hand every detail of tho immense
business and It runs like clockwork.
Seldom Is a complaint heard from
even the most exacting of housewives,
and when one is registered It is cour
teously received and the fault, if ono
exists, promptly rectified.
"Cleanliness before godliness every
time" Is Colonel Wilson's motto and
though it Is not posted on any wall,
every employe understands that hlB
Job depends primarily on his cleanli
ness. In Cristobal are the great cold
storage plant, bakery, coffee plant, ico
plant, Ice cream plant, 'corned beef
plant, butter printing plant and laun-'
dry, and in every ono of them the un
written rule "be clean" Is adhered to
with the utmost care. Nowhere, If It
can be avoidod, is there pcrspnal con
tact with the food, and the numerous
and Ingenious automatic machines are
kept scrupulously clean.
Now let's got back to figures, in
ordor to obtain some idea of tho mag
nitude of tho commissary department's
operations. Take tho cold storage
plant first. In its 192,230 cubic feet of
refrigerated space aro kept constantly
on band meat and vegetablo supplies
for ten days at least, In tome in-

ntancun much mora. Hnngtng In long
rows la thu icy cold roomB aro tho
carcasses of 400 beoveB and hogs and
sheep In due proportion. In other
rooms, not so cold, aro 150 toiiB of po
tatoes, and vast quantities of onions,
turnips, beets, carrots, cabbages,
yams, celery, tomatoes nnd other veg
etables. In yet other rooms aro ten
tonB of poultry, and clflowlioro nro
boxes of fruit without number. And
this enormous supply Is daily depleted
and dally renewed.
Adjoining tho cold storage plant Is
tho bakery, in whoso immense ovena
ure baked each working 'day about
20,000 loaveB of bread, 2,200 rolls and
380 pounds of cako. Tho cofTeo de
partment, which roasts and sends out
about 300.000 pounds of tho roasted
berry each year, receives the especial
attention of Colonel Wilson, for ho
is himself a groat cofleo drinker. Ho
personally makes up tho formulas for
tho blends, and ns something of a cof
fco connoisseur myself, I enn testify
that lie knows what ho is nbout when
he does it.
Tho people ( of tho zone, whlto nnd
black alike, nro vory fond of Ice
cream, and to supply the demand the
commlsslary manufactures about 140,.
000 gallons a year, of threo grades.
Tho first grade -is ns good Ico crcntn
ns ono can got anywhere, nnd oven
tho third grade Is mighty welcome
nftcr a hot dny in tho Culebra Cut or
tho Pedro Miguel locks.
Aro you tired of figures yet? If not,
please consider that the Ico plant at
Cristobal makes nearly 40,000 tons ol
ice a year, tho corned beef plant has
an nnnual output of about 270,000
pounds, and that almost 335,000
pounds of butter 1b handled by the
butter printing plant, all of tho butter
being brought from tho United States.
Then we will move to tho laundry. In
this Bpaclous building, with Its long
rows of washing machines nnd dry
ing and ironing dovlces, nil tho laun
dry work of tho Zone, excepting that
of tho Ancoiriiospltnl, is dono, nnd In
addition that of all tho steamship lines
running to Colon except ono. "Wo nro
now handling," said tho manager, "nn
average of about hnlf n million pieces
n month, nnd in tho months when tho
tourists come In greatest numbers tho
figures mount to about 800,000."
Tho figures I havo been giving aro
npproxlmato only, for thoy nro chang
ing continually with changing condi
tions. Hero 1b n list of somo of tho
moro important importations of food

As will bo readily understood, the
commission 1b able and willing to sell
food at very little above cost. Conse
quently the housewito on tho iBthmus
can buy at prices that aro never above
those In tho states, and that nearly
always aro considerably lower.
An important part of the commit
sary plant is tho industrial and ex
perimental laboratory In Cristobal,
where all tho foods aro tested and
many things, such as flavoring ex
tracts, are manufactured.
The commission conducts more than
a dozen hotels for white Americans,
where good meals are furnished for
30 cents each; a score of mess balls
for European laborers, whero a day's
board costs forty cents, and about
twenty-flvo kitchens for West Indian
laborers, where board castB thirty
cents a day. Something liko a million
meals are served each month In these
various establishments, for nearly ev
ery employe of tho commission euts
at a government table. It hns been
raid that no private contractor in
the world feeds his employes as well
as 'tho Isthmian canal commission.
Very few of tho men ever nto better
meals than they aro getting on tho
Isthmus, and this is true of tho Amer
icans as well as of tho Spaniards and
West Indians.

Attacked by General Jeff Thompson,

Whole Company Captured.
In Soptombor, 1861, tho Thlrty-thlrd
Illinois loft Camp Butler, near Spring
field, III., for tho front. On arriving al
Pilot Knob, Mo., whoro Colonel Thnyei
of tho First Nebraska was In com
mand threo companies of tho Thirty
third Illinois were statlonod on the
Iron Mountain railroad: Company K
(Captain I.lpplucott), with 00 men, at
I.uwsoii'h Station; Company E (Cap
tain milott), at Big Rlvor bridge,
nbout ten miles north of Lawson's Sta
tion, nnd Company B nt Victoria, 30
tulles from St. I.ouls.
In addition to tho regular govern
ment rations, nbuudanco of fresh
milk, butter, eggs, chickens, etc., were
obtained from tho country folk, and
tho boys got fat, wrlten William H.
Edgar of Chlcngo, In the National
I.nto In October, one morning, while
tho company was at breakfast, two
soldiers canie running Into camp, and
reported to Captain I.lpplucott that
Company E, at Big Rlvur brldgo, had
been attacked by den. Jeff Thompson,
tho noted guerrilla, with 700 men, and
needed Immediate help. Tho captain
called for 50 volunteers to go to the
relief of Captain Elliott. Ab wo pro
ceeded up tho track occasional shots
wero heard In tho timber from Thomp
son's plckuts, nnd soon after, following
a big curve In tho track, we camo In
night of IllnckwcU'a Station, nbout
half a mllo distant, with n straight
track In front, a cornfield on tho right
full of corn shocks nnd a deep rocky
cut extending the wholo dlstnnco on
tho left of tho track. A switch, wltb
soma cars, wero stnndlng on It, and
some woodpiles about tho station,
which afforded shelter. Tho company
proceeded cautiously, wlion suddenly
-a fierco volley camo from tho corn,
field, nnd It was apparent nt ones
that tho Johnnies had captured Com
pany E, nnd wcro moving down on
Company K, nnd wcro massed behind
'the cars, station nnd .woodpllos, and
woro well secreted in tho corn shocks
on tho right. Tho company at once
;doploycd along tho cornfield fonce, a
few feet distant from tho track, and
directed Its flro upon tho corn shocks,
which seemed nllvo with Johnnies.
And there for 20 minutes tho boys
with tho old Fremont muskets in theli
hands learned nbout "hot shot" all
ithey enred to know.
When tho captain saw that the
-enemy was surrounding us ho ordered
n retrcnt. A number, including the
-first leutonnnt of tho company, were
taken prisoners, whllo those not taken
began n hasty rotreat down tho track,
.encouraged greatly by tho bulletB of
tho pursuing Johnnies.
About n dozen of tho boys took;
refuge In n cavo. Several squads ot
Johnnies pnsiod and repassed the
place, until finally tho first lieutenant
of tho company, with sovoral men
who had boon parolled, came along,
and ho ordered the men to come out.
This they did, and wero passed Into
camp as prisoners of war. The John
,1110s fearing rolnforcemonts from the
south did not pursuo tho company
very far. and on arriving at camp
tents wero struck, and the company
marched to Mineral Point, ten miles
to tho south, where 2,000 Union sol
diers were encamped.
Captain Elliot's entire command waa
captured and at once paroled. Ob
the day following the writer, in chart
of a squad, proceeded on a hand oar
to the cave, and secured the guns and
equipments he had left there. It was
a pleasure later for thla company to
participate In the battle at Fredew
ickstown, which put Jeff Thompson
and bis raiders to flight, and drovt
them out of the state.
Halleck and the Teamster.
General Halleck, like General Sher
man, was in military aB well as per
sonnl affairs a man of some odd ways.
When in camp ho was accustomed to
put on citizen's clothes and to private
ly take a look at men and things. Dun
lng ono of theso toura ho helped a
teamster out of the mud, and then
gnvo him a sovero lecturo for not drlr

floundering through it, and, having
reached tho top of the bluff, rolloved
himself of volloy after volley of oaths
upon everything in general, and upon
General Halleck in particular, for not
having the creek bridged. The crltfc
cism was Just, but tho general had al
ready ordered tho construction of a
bridge, and, being incognito, hugely
injoyed the verbal castlgation.
