Mrs. Lodwig has suffered from a
cancer on the left leg just above the
knee for a long time.
While out picking huckleberries
two weeks ago she was bitten on the
ankle , by rattlesnakes. Her nephew
Karl Lodwig , came to her assistance

red , turned into a running sore.
It remained in this condition fo
four days. On the fourth day the dls
charge stopped and proud flesh began
J\to make its appearance. The snak
'poison had worked all through th
cancer , the swelling disappeared , an
the heretofore ugly looking cancer be
gan to heal and turned to a health
flesh color. '
Last Thursday the wound began t
heal and yesterday Mrs. Lodwig wa
in town , almost cured.

Mother Nature plays a now trump
card this time , " said Commander
Robert E. Peary in his quarters at the
Grand Union hotel today , "I will cer
tainly reach the polo this time , assum
ing I retain my strength and health.
My equipment will bo the same as on
the last trip , but I will profit by the
lessons of that last trip.
"Last timq we would have reached
the pole but for the easterly Ice drifts ,
This time wo shall go farther west bj
land , leaving it nt Capo Columbua , and
Instead of heading directly north we
will head northwest , thus getting the
benefit of the eastern drift of the ice
of which nothing was known until oui
"Another change Is that I will havt
a stronger advance party than on the
last trip , so that when wo got readj
for the final dash there will be sledges
and supplies enough. Last time then
was not enough to load five sledges. '

sii. d the following statement regard
ing their discussions :
"Matters pertaining to Inlertiito
commerce law and rulings of the com-
i mission , as affecting shippers , were
| discussed. The questions consider' 1
are of great importance to shippers
generally , and , after discussion the
meeting was adjourned to a fute 'e
da' 3 , subject to call. There was a
disposition evinced to bring about a
closer association of shipping interests
with the carriers and to determine
what suggestion might be offered to
bettor conditions and facilitate the
handling of traffic. "
The traffic managers object princ'- '
pally , it is understood , to the ruling
having to do with the routing of
freight , claiming that the latest
change does not cure the evil , inas
much as a railway company under the
authority which the ruling gives ,
wnild lossrve the right to route , thus
confiscating from the owner of the
pr < perty the right to gc t out of his
freight tint which benefits him.
