The Western Demurrage bureau has
adopted the uniform demurrage rules
recommended by the meeting of railroad
commissioners in Washington in Nov
ember last and subsequently endorsed
by the interstate commerce commission
The rules give shippers the privilege
of unoiding cars within forty eight
hours without penalty and also give
them in a general way the right to
average their demurrage the railroads
thus putting a premium on rapid un
loading If a jobber unloids some cars
in twelve hours thus releasing the cars
and fails to unload others in less than
forty eight hours he is given credit in
some measure for the rapid release of a
part of the cars used in handling his

But For Them All Green Plants Would
Vanish From the Earth
Few persons can realize at tlrst
what an Immeuse number and variety
of microbes there arc not onl around
us In the air and dust and water but
also in us and on us and in and on
every living thing The work the
huge syswni or hemlcal change and
the circulation or the element-carbon
oxygen hydrogen nitrogen and
sulphur which they carry on is in
cessant varied and complex Thoe
five elements are the main and essen
tial constituents of all living thit
Supposing there were no microbes
then would he no putrefaction im
breiliig down of the deail bodies of
animals and plants which wer once
alive Into gas and substances soluble
in water
They by a series of steps in which
different kinds of bacteria or microbes
are successively concerned convert
the protehls and the fats and sugar
of dead plants and animals into less
elaborate bodies organic acids aro
matic bodies and other compounds
some highly poisonous to mam ami
at last when what were highly com
plex combinations of hundreds of at
oms In each molecule have been re
duced by the action of first one and
then of another kind of microbe into
comparatively simple substances of
twenty or thirty atoms to the mole
cnle the coup de grace Is given ti
certain special microbes which con
vert these later compounds into still
simpler combinations namely ammo
nia and nitrates which are fairly sta
ble so that the whole elaborate chem
ical fabric of living matter in a few
hours or days after death is broken
down until it readies the stable miii
era condition practically carbonate
and nitrate of ammonia smelling
If there were no microbes this would
never occur The earth would lie
cumbered with the dead bodies of past
generations of animals and plants un
deeomposed And very soon all the
organic elements all the carbon and
nitrogen if not all the hydrogen and
oxygen on the face of the earth would
be fixed in these corpses and the
green plants would perish from the
whole world for want of sustenance
for it is the green plants which feed
on and absolutely must have as their
food the carbonic acid ammonia and
nitrates into which the microbes re
solve all living things when dead It
is the green plants which from those
simple compounds build up again the
more complex molecules the sugars
fats albumens and proteids and pro
vide for the nourishment and increase
of the most complex of all the living
matter hidden in protoplasm Sir Ray

The Perverse Comma
That curious and now stereotyped
blunder of punctuation which gives
us God rest you merry gentlemen
as an inferior substitute for the
quaint old greeting God rest you
merry gentlemen turns up regularly
every Christmas It is a pity for the
ancient formula to be thus perverted
since God rest you merry or Kest
you merry was a recognized form ot
salutation in Elizabethan days and
may be found in the works of Shake
speare and of many contemporary
writers while for the modernized
form which obscures the original
sense of the phrase there is of course
no authority whatever If any one
will have the curiosity to look up the
old Christmas carol which begins with
the words in question he will find
them correctly punctuated London
Alaskan Glaciers
An interesting fact about Alaskan
glaciers is that some are dead and
others are alive Davidson glacier
which is really a tongue of the jluir
glacier has been ascended by travel
ers for a number of years It is a dead
glacier having a moraine of several
miles between it and the sea Looking
at it from the boat it represents a
kaleidoscopic appearance as the sun
shines upon it and the surface seems
scratched with tiny pin lines These
are in reality deep crevices which
must be approached cautiously foi
they are lurking pitfalls for the un
wary Vancouver Providence
A Man of Straw
Many years ago in England men
could easily be found to give any evi
dence upon oath that might be re
quired and some of these person
walked openly in Westminster hall
with a straw in one of their shoes tc
signify they wanted employment a
witnesses This was the origin of the
saying He is a man of straw Hut
the custom has high antiquity
