"I am hardly ever without Pe.runa In

"In consequence, an Inflamed condition

Healthy Mucous Membrane.
Those who are fortunate enough to have
perfectly healthy mucous membranes or
dinarily do not catch the grip.
The mucoua membranes lining the
nose, throat and lungs, when In a normal
atate, are an effectual barrier against the
Invasion of grip.
But, If there happens to be the slightest
catarrhal derangement of the mucous
membrane, then the victim becomes an
easier prey to the grip.

Kxperlence has shown that the people
who use Peruna as a remedy for grip gen
erally recover ooner and are less liable
to the distressing and long-continued
after-affects of the grip.
When Peruna has not been used during
the course cf the grip and the patfcnt
finds himself suffering from the after
effects of this disease, a course of Peruna
should be resorted to.
Suffered Twelve Years From After
Effect of I Grippe.
Mr. Victor Patncaude. 328 Madison Pt.,
Topeka, Kan., member of Knlghta and
Ladles of Security, writes:
"Twelve years ago 1 had a severe at
tack of la grippe and I never really re
covered my health and strength but
grew weaker every year, until I was un
able to work.
"Two years "'ago I be gan using Peruna
and It built, up my strength so that In a
couple of month 1 was able to go to work
pf Ogden and would simply have to take
the business which came naturally t It.
On the other hand, Cjilon Pacific official
maintain that mosuof the business would
fall naturally to it, because of that road
being the short line and because It Is one
of the best equipped roads of the country,
and -because it haa a track unexcelled any
The question naturally arise what would
have become of the through business pf
the Union Pacific If the Interest controlling

busine&a to these lines? It would. It Is
maintained, have been in Just the position

to be satisfied with what through business

Gould waa forced to build a line from
Salt Lake City across the Slerre Nevada
ranges to the Pacific ocean In order to gef

to buy enough stock in the Southern Pa

believed may never transpire affect
OrnahaT That la the question asked here.
Under existing conditions the Union Pa
cific, the Southern Pacific, the Oregon
Short IJne and the Oregon Railway and
Navigation company lines are one great
system known as the Harriman lines.
These have high aalaried officers in the
east who look after the welfare of all
these line. Judge R. 8. Lovett Is general
counsel of all these lines; J. S. Stubba I
traffic director. Julius Kruttschnltt la di-
rector of maintenance and operation,
Erastu. Young I. auditor. H. P. Thrall Is

With the dissolution of the big system
these men would have to be apportioned

similar officer of It own. Might not

The Northern Securities case In which th
government got the decision that a com

of ttw Sherman antt-trust act, it ia pointed
out, waa considerably different from th

The Burlington was a point at Usu in
th other rase. Harriman had applied to
lb combination to secure Joint Interest in
th Burlington because he feared that much
of tha Union Pacific traffic would be di
verted to the two northern roads by th
Burlington via Billings. He wa promptly
turned down by Morgan, HU1 and tuelr

PROVINCETOWN. Mass.. Jan. 81. Spe
cial.) They have found another moans l?
hold down the end of Cap Cod beside
building the new Pilgrims' monument, of
which the president helped to lay the
cornerstone. The need of such a
device' 'arise from the drifting" of
the sands which compose the extremity
of the peninsula. In this shifting of the
dunes eveeythln" ia swamped. Farm are
burled, houses covered over, forests and
roads inundated and the waters from the
very rivers and harbors sucked up.
Cape, Cod for fully X) years haa been
fighting the sand. Most of the time the
aand haa had the best of it. The municipal
authorities have called In the state and the
state haa called In the national government,
and after all their efforts and experiments
they have found that the simplest defense
gainst th sand Is the one that nature has
made th most abundant Just plain beaxh
This, by th way, la not a recent discov
ery, for bark In .the last century, the town
crier used every' spring to add to his other
admonitions about letting the cow run
loose, rutting forest trees and paying the
taxes thia. important warning: ."And. now
all ye who hear are admonished by th
authorities that it Is the time to plant
beach grass, and all those good cltiiens.
therefore, who respect the law and .itax
for the penalty of it neglect will, forth
with proceed to the planting of said grass."
Beach Urasa to Ilels.
Even In those early days thu value of
beach grass was appreciated, but the
various efforts to have it planted 4a. not
seem to have been effective until a few
years ago. when tlio state of Massachusetts
Itself took over the sand dune desert that
lies back of Provincetown and began a
systematic process of reclamation. A
representative of the Department of Agri
culture In Washington who has made a
study of gTKss binding In European coun
tries, has inspected the work done, and
placed his stamp of approval upon It.
Where formerly Cape Cod was held up
as a horrible example of building on sand
after the land had been denuded of tree
It Is now referred to as the "best example
that this country affords of the extensive
utilization of beach grass for the binding
of shifting sand, which would otherwise
cause great damage by ita encroachment
on valuable property." And Cape Cod
may yet see farms and forests where now
are only sand dunes.
The dunes extend over an area of some
6.000 acres and have long been a menace
to farms and roads. At times, when
high winds have prevailed, they have
threatened the destruction of villages and
home. Provincetown Itself would be
brought, according to government report,
"into Immediate peril should any destruc
tive force be brought to bear upon the
adjacent dune area or in case of tho
encroachment of tBe shifting dunes further
back but In line with the winter winds."
A Menace ta Shipper.

of storm as many as a thousand vessels, I
even more In danger, for it la urrounded
on three sides by sand accumulations that
have washed around the head of the cape.
It was this menace to coastwise shipping
and the Ashing Industry more than in
thing else that caused the national gov
ernment to act.
East harbor was made worthies by the
encroachment of' sand and is new only a
fresh water marsh, while parts of the main
harbor have within the last fifty years
been filled In 400 or 600 feet. At places
where houaes now stand there was not
many year ago anchorage for good sized
The sand duno area extends from the
tip of th cape to Truro, and it was, before
systematic grass culture began, as dreary
and cheerless as any desert In the world.
Even Cape Codders avoided it. It was
almost devoid of animal life.
The hills and ridge were eearea ana
t"furrowed by the winds. At places the
rugged tops of trees projected, showing
where some forest had been burled forty
or fifty years before, while at other places

The sand drifted constantly with the
winds. It covered up pathe and roads. The
single railroad track that extends aloni
the edge of the dune area hus had a con

Clouds of sand denser than the snowa of

near Truro have been' covered with sand
and today there Is no trace of even the
cre-k. SeveraJ years ago It Is said that a
colony of artists settled among; the dunes
between Provincetown and Truro. After
painting; the summer season throunh thi-y
closed up their bungalows and went back
to their town homes.
When they returned the next year there
was not a vestige remaining; of their
houses, and where these had stood waa
only a great waste of sand. While digging
in the sand preparatory to building anew
they came upon the roofs of their former
Discouraged they sought out new loca
tions for their summer homes, but the next
season on their return they found that the
sand tide had turned and their dwelling
of two seasons before were now perched
LlarU on a hill.
With a remedy at hand furnished by Na
ture htrself It may seem strange that It
was not more effectually applied earlier In
the history of the Cat. The fact Is It was
applied, but lack of system and concentra
tion prevented any great success. Besides
there was laxity In the enforcement of the
law. While the town was paying for
beach grass, according to one authority,
some of the citizens were Increasing tho
size of their property by dumping sand into
the harbor, and though a law prohibiting
the removal of sod and timber had been
uassed it was only feebly enforcod.
Mate Took Charge.
When the state of Massachusetts took
bold of the work the sand dune area waa
designed as Provincelands. By mean of
public ownership the authorities were en
abled to exercise a more effective sur
veillance than would have been possible
were the areas under private ownership.
The Department of Agriculture at Wash
ington had in tiie meantime been conduct
ing a series of investigations regarding
sand grass in the hope of reclaiming not
only the- Cape Cod lauds but also other
vast areas along the southern coasts and
In California and Washington. Repre
sentatives were sent to foreign countries
to learn what ha been accomplished.
They discovered that it was possible to
transplant graaacs so that the most stub
born and lawless beaches could be held in
control. France, as an example, after a
-onstant struggle of more than 100 yeara
had transformed to desolate plains of
Gascony into forest laids and fertile fields,
while Holland had rendered Its country by
the same means secure against the en
croachments of the North sea.
Whll there are several grasses that may
be used for sand binding and that are at
present employed by the government In
other territories, it was deemed best to
continue the use of beach grass because
on the capo It occurs very abundantly near
the area where It is required. The stout,
coarse stems spring from long creeping
roots and rise In tufts from two to four
Mauls Weave Strong; .Mat.
As the sand drifts In and around the
plants new branches are formed, and In
this manner ns the sand piles higher and
higher the tufta of grass rise above It.
The roots sometimes reach a length of
twenty or thirty feet, and apreading In all
directions through a drift Join m-ith other
plant and become a densely woven, mat
like mass that nothing but a pick and
shovel can loosen.
This grass Is of a green color and the
head Is something like rye. As It 1 blown
about by the wind while held tight by Its
root It describes my raids of circles a
accurate If made by a compass.
It strong roots have been put to many
different purposes ropes are made of
them, mats are woven of them and the
stems are used for thatch. Paper has also
been made of the grass.
It Is used when young as food for cattle,
while In the Hebrides it ia used for pack
saddles, bags and packing cases. , In
fact lis utilization for commercial pur
pose has resulted in such disturbance of
existing industries in some parta of Europ
that the authorities were compelled to
prohibit Its harvesting. .
The work has progressed so successfully
on the rape that a state road which was
built across the area la In gooJ condition
and promises to be fairly permanent. This
Is ccnsldered quite a victory in view of the
fact that previously a road waa no sooner
laid out In summer than It waa destroyed
In winter. The road extends from Province
town to the Peaked Hill life saving sta
tion and provides an easy means of access
